Homemade Hummus

I always order Hummus.  I like to eat it with GG crackers, salads or chopped veggies.  But, what I found out pretty quickly is that the pre-packaged kind you buy in the store is FULL of fats and sometimes sugar. Definitely NOT what I want to spend my calories on during meals (I’d much rather have wine).  I found this super easy and healthy Hummus recipe and wanted to share it.  This is a BASIC hummus recipe.  The options to add different veggies and make something new are endless…….

Ingredients

  • 2 cans garbanzo beans (3 cups), drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons Tahini
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (2 large lemons)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for 1 minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for 30 seconds more. This extra time helps “whip” or “cream” the tahini, making the hummus smooth and creamy.

Add the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the whipped tahini and lemon juice. Process for 30 seconds, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process another 30 seconds or until well blended.

Open, drain, and rinse the chickpeas. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1 minute. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl, then add remaining chickpeas and process until thick and quite smooth; 1 to 2 minutes.

Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have tiny bits of chickpea. To fix this, with the food processor turned on, slowly add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until you reach the perfect consistency.

Taste for salt and adjust as needed. Serve hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and dash of paprika. Store homemade hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate up to one week.
