Maille cornichon hummus

Maille cornichon hummus


  • Bagels
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 cups Chick peas
  • 1 cup Maille caramelized onions gherkins or Maille Cayenne Chili peppers for a spicier hummus
  • Fresh basil, small handful of leaves (or dill)
  • Garlic Salt to taste (or add 1 or 2 cloves and put regular salt)
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Gherkins juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon(s) Olive oil


Cut the bagels in thin slices. Brush with olive oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper and bake at 350® for 20 minutes or until grilled.

In a food processor, add the chick peas, gherkins, basil, garlic salt and the pepper as well as the gherkins juice. Blend the mixture. Check the consistency of the hummus and add 1 or 2 tablespoon(s) of olive oil. If the mixture needs more liquid, add more gherkins juice. Serve with some chopped basil over top, the bagel crostinis and extra gherkins for topping.
