Easy Hummus Recipe

I love hummus! What a great line to intro with, right? But really, if I could eat hummus every single day, I would.


While I do not call this an authentic version by any means, it gets me by and curbs any hummus craving I have with just a few simple ingredients that I almost always have in my house.



INGREDIENTS

1 cup garbanzo beans

4 unpeeled garlic cloves

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

2/3 cup tahini

1/4 cup water with ice

1/4 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt


INGREDIENTS FOR TOPPING/EXTRA FLAVOR

fresh lemon juice, olive oil, paprika, cumin, flat leaf parsley, pine nuts


DIRECTIONS

  1. Pulse garlic and lemon juice in a processor then let it sit for 10 minutes

  2. Strain and keep the liquid, discard any solid pieces

  3. Blend the lemon garlic liquid with the tahini. Create a smooth texture by adding in your cold water 1 tbsp at a time while blending in between.

  4. Add chickpeas, cumin, salt and blend until smooth (adding more lemon juice or water as necessary for smoothness and flavor). At this point I taste and decide what I will add more of (salt, cumin, lemon, tahini) until done.
