I LOVE hummus. I can only really have it enter the house on certain occasions or I would probably turn into a chickpea!
There are a lot of great brands on the market these days with NonGMO Project Verified options.. but my numero uno is still home made by yours truly <3
- 1 can of chickpea/garbanzo beans drained and rinsed- I keep some of the liquid to blend in
- 1/4 cup Tahini
- 1 tsp of olive oil
- 2 cloves of minced garlic - Always a fun option to roast garlic beforehand (You can use 1/2 or 1 1 if you aren't a garlic lover like mwa)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
Blend all ingredients in hi-speed blender for 10-15 seconds. Scrape down sides and stir. If need be pulse again for smooth consistency!
Fun to add jalepeno peppers or chipotle for a spicer version! Chopped kalmata olives or even some roasted red peppers to change the flavor.
