I made up this Chestnut Hummus yesterday with our ready peeled chestnuts and it got rave reviews from the tasting panel.
11/2 cups Chestnut Brae ready peeled chestnuts
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons of butter
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoon of cumin
2 tablespoons of Tahini
Salt & Pepper to taste
Paprika to garnish
To boil the ready peeled chestnuts, cover with cold water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes. Keep a little of the cooking liquid. Alternatively you can steam the ready peeled chestnuts for 15 minutes.
Put your chestnuts, 2 tablespoons of cooking liquid, Tahini, garlic, lemon juice, butter, olive oil and cumin into the blender and pulse until the mix is smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
To serve season with paprika & good quality olive oil.
