Homemade Hummus

With all of the baking (and taste testing) going on around here this month, it is good to have some healthy options available.

One of my favorite snacks is homemade hummus.

It is so easy to make (your food processor does the work) and always turns out fresh and amazing.

Perfect for dipping veggies, crackers, your finger or pita.

Garlic Hummus

Adapted from She Has Good Taste

 

2-4 cloves garlic (In a pinch, I use 2 tsp of the refrigerated kind)

1 15 oz can low sodium chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 tsp sea salt

1/3 cup tahini

2 tbsp (more if desired) fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil, use more for a smoother hummus

Top with olive oil and paprika (optional)

 

-Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse for a few minutes until desired consistency is reached.

-Adjust seasoning, spices as needed. Taste testing is encouraged!

-Move to serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil and paprika

***Easily stores in an air tight container in the refrigerator

 

For a twist on this basic hummus, try making Edamame Hummus or Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
