Garlicky Hummus

16 Jul

We love hummus! Our favorite kind to get is Asmar’s Extra Garlic Hommus which is a local brand here in the D.C. area. I always read the ingredients when we buy most anything and I noticed that hummus didn’t have that many so I thought I’d try making hummus at home & here is what I came up with.

[ Ingredients ]
– 2 cans cooked garbanzo beans (reserve 1 tablespoon garbanzo beans & 3/4 cup of the liquid)
– 4 cloves garlic
– 1/4 cup lemon juice (I use Lakewood Organic Pure Lemon Juice)
– 1/4 cup tahini
– 1 teaspoon salt (start with 1/2 & see if you’d like to add more)
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– paprika (to taste)
– cumin (to taste)

[ Process ]
– place garbanzos, reserved liquid, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, & salt in a high speed blender or food processor & make sure to secure the lid
– blend until creamy
– transfer the hummus in a container (scrape
– garnish with reserved garbanzo beans
– pour olive oil
– sprinkle paprika & cumin

Serve with with whole wheat pita, crackers or raw vegetables like carrots, cucumbers & celery. If you’d like it not so garlicky, just leave in 1 garlic.┬áMakes 3 cups.
