hummus4Hummus goes in the category of, “This is so easy to make, why on earth would you buy the pre-made stuff that’s so inferior?” I have brownies in that category, but hummus is so much easier to make than brownies.



1 can garbanzo beans, liquid drained and reserved
1/2 of the drained liquid
1/4 c tahini
2 cloves garlic minced fine
2T lemon juice
1/4t ground cumin
1t kosher salt

1. put all ingredients in the bowl of any food processor
2. process to desired consistency (add a bit more of the reserved liquid to thin the hummus if desired)
3. scrape the sides of the bowl and pulse a few more times

-for hot hummus (which is awesome), add 1/2 of a jalapeƱo after processing, then pulse a few more times
-add 1/2 of an avocado for hummus that’s gross looking but pretty tasty
-I once added 1/2 can of black beans (drained and rinsed) which was also ugly, and not too tasty IMO

Serve with
-pita chips, pita wedges, carrot sticks, celery, jicama sticks, cucumber slices, bell pepper slices
