For some {strange} reason, the idea of making hummus has been really intimidating to me. I don't really know why, but I didn't see how I'd ever be able to make it quite as yummy as the variety we buy from a local restaurant. Today, that all changed.

I made hummus!

And it's yummy!

You can make hummus too. I promise.

1 Can Garbanzo Beans {drained, with the liquid reserved}
1/4 Cup Liquid from Garbanzo Beans
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice {add more to taste, if you'd like}
2 Tbsp. Tahini
3 Cloves Garlic, crushed and peeled
1/2 tsp. Salt {add more to taste}
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil

Pulse garlic in a food processor to break it up as much as possible.
To the food processor, add garbanzo beans and 1/4 cup liquid, and blend until you have a thick paste.
Add lemon juice, tahini, salt a olive oil and mix very well, pausing to scrape the sides of your bowl.
Taste, and add more salt, lemon juice, etc. if desired, mixing well between additions.

I love hummus with tortilla chips, or spread on a corn tortilla for the base of a wrap. Of course it's also yummy with fresh veggies!

  1. Made two batches of this to serve on Christmas eve. Soooo yummy! The second batch I added roasted red bell peppers from a jar. Next time I would half the oil if I were going to add something like that. It changed the consistency a little. Not in a terrible way, but I think I would want to adjust a little anyway. The one with the peppers was especially a hit. It was so quick and easy I'll gladly make this as a staple snacky food.
