Hummus

I honestly can not get enough of hummus. If I could love a dip, I would be in love with this one. I just don't love paying so much for a ready-made version from the store when you can enjoy the unique flavors and cost-savings of one made at home. This recipe provides both!


Hummus

Ingredients:
  • 1 - 15 ounce can chick peas / garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup tahini sauce
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (or the juice of one lemon)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
Directions:
  • Combine chick peas, tahini sauce, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic into a food processor or blender. 
  • Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.

The above recipe creates a consistency similar to store bought hummus.
To make the hummus smoother, add water, by the tablespoon and re-blend. Repeat until you have the desired consistency.
