Colorful and Tasty 3D Printed Hummus

The world of 3D food printing is rapidly growing, and as such, we have decided to share the secret to printing hummus in 3D. Firstly, you will need to gather your tools. You will need a 3D printer that uses syringes and containers, food coloring, a spoon, a fork, and your hummus. For this example, the creator, Luis Fraguada uses a homemade 3D printer with Delta Extruders that he calls Pinya.

For the hummus, it is best to use the following recipe. Use 150 grams of chickpeas, 20 gramsĀ of tahini, 5 milliliters of olive-oil, a pinch of salt. Simply use a hand blender to get your hummus to a slightly thick consistency. This is so that it can be run through the printer easily. Once you have made the hummus, split it into as many batches as you want, and add 1-2 drops of food coloring to the batches and mix it thoroughly with your fork if you want colored hummus.

Use your spoon to load the hummus into the printing containers and press it down firmly to get rid of any air pockets. Now you are ready to load it into your printer and turn it off. Use this method to create amazing hummus snacks in any shapes, and dazzle your friends.
