Homemade Hummus Recipe

How many of my readers are hummus fans? I sure am! Last week, I was randomly craving chips and hummus after having gone several months without having any. The Walmart brand was decent, but after finishing the entire tub in one week, I decided to make my own. The recipe I came up with was leaps and bounds better than store-bought.


Homemade Hummus

Ingredients:
1-15oz can garbanzo beans
1/4 cup tahini (often found in the international aisle)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2-1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
4 Tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon paprika

Directions:
Combine ingredients, and blend using an immersion hand blender--such as a Bamix--until creamy. (Food processors and regular blenders work, as well.)

Store in the refrigerator. Serve with chips or veggies.

    It just needs fresh lemon juice and fresh garlic to be both authentic and delicious, and the lemon juice will also eliminate any need for salt.
    Yum!

    Hummus is delicious! You can also flavor it with jalapeƱos or chili pepper sauce, if you like spicy! Thank you Ellie for sharing. I read all of your blogs and really appreciate all your hard work.

  6. Do you drain your garbanzo beans?
