Yes I finally made hummus, all by myself! I’m feeling accomplished. :) I love hummus, but usually buy it at a local company here in Portland. I wanted to make it myself for snacks and whenever I am craving it. Yay! I love the simple and healthy ingredients that go into this hummus. Also, if you haven't already checked my previous post, Butternut Squash Fries , you should, those fries are great with this hummus.
Classic Hummus Recipe
1 15oz can organic chickpeas
2 garlic cloves (1 if you don't like a lot of garlic)
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup tahini
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup warm water
Drain 1 can of chickpeas.
In a blender (I use a magic bullet) add all the ingredients.
Blend for 1-2 minutes.
(optional) Drizzle a dap of extra-virgin olive oil, a pinch of cayenne pepper and cilantro on top for extra flavor.
