Hummus soup? Well sort of

maj54us | Aug 31, 2013 11:48 AM

I asked earlier in this forum, what should we do with all the water left from boiling your own chick peas.

I was cooking with my wife making hummus when it hit me.
Hey why don't we use all the ingredients of hummus and make a soup out of it.

I must say that I was pretty impressed with myself. My wife was skeptic but she liked it.

the result was a very satisfying soup that will need some tweaks.

Basically to the 3 liters of boiled chick peas water I added.
1 cup lemon juice
4 grated garlic
1/2 cup tahini
2 cup chick peas

seasoned with
1/2 tea spoon cumin
1/2 spoon mediterranean all spice
salt
peper

The result was a lemony satisfying soup.

What do you think, How would you tweak this soup to make it even better?
