Tortialla chips and hummus is a favorite family snack in our house, and we go through quite alot. I decided it would be easier and cheaper to try my hand at making my own hummus. Turns out it is so incredibly easy to make hummus, I can’t believe all the money we’ve spent on hummus in the grocery store! After playing around with different recipes for a while now, I think I’ve finally found the right one. Thanks to allrecipes.com for this one (slightly modified by me!). It tastes great with chips, fresh veggies, smeared on a sandwich…or even just a finger-full right from the bowl.
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
2 med/lg cloves garlic
4 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp tahini
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Place all ingredients into blender or food processor. Puree until smooth.
