The Best Vegan BBQ Recipes From Ibiza

4817

Recently, I traveled to Ibiza for a couple of days. I stayed in a wonderful Spanish villa, which belongs to the Spanish-German couple Laura and Francisco. The house is located just outside from Sant Rafael and next to a huge stud farm.

I could not have chosen a better place. Laura and Francisco made me feel welcome immediately. The house is wonderful, rustic, very clean and authentic. Laura spoiled me with herbs and vegetables from her own garden. During one of the last evenings they organized a BBQ for their guests. Laura showed me some very easy meat-free BBQ recipes. Here they are …

IMG_8454*The blender broke a couple of days before I came to Ibiza, so we used a mortar instead. It was quite a job, but it tasted delicious. 🙂


Servings: 4 // Prep Time: 10 min // Cook Time: 0 min


What you need:

1 ½ Cups dried chickpeas(already soaked and cooked), or 1 can (425 grams)
1 Lemon, juiced
¼ Cup tahini
1 Garlic clove, minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
½ Teaspoon freshly ground sea salt
1 Teaspoon ground cumin
2 to 3 Tablespoon water
Dash of ground paprika for serving

How you can do it:

  1. Combine tahini and lemon juice in a food processor or with a handheld blender.
  2. Add olive oil, garlic, cumin and lemon. Process for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add chickpeas and process for 2-3 minute. Most likely the hummus will be a little too thick or still have tiny bits of chickpea. To fix this, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until the consistency is right.
  4. Scrape the hummus into a bowl and sprinkle with ground paprika.
  5. Serve with fresh bread and roasted vegetables. Enjoy!
