I am in love with hummus. My sister-in-law frequently serves it at our family gatherings and I pretty much plant myself next to it and chow down. The creamy texture, the bite from the lemon, the earthiness of the tahini...it's just so yum. My favorite thing to dip with is carrots. Their sweetness pairs perfectly with the garlic and lemon. LOVE!
I occasionally can find a good deal on hummus at the grocery store when it goes on sale buy one, get one, but I knew I could make it myself for less money. And so the search began for a recipe. I adapted one that I found to suit my tastes and the results were outstanding. I'll be making this one again and again! Healthy, easy, and addictively delicious!
- 1 (15 oz) can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
- ⅓ cup tahini
- ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ tsp oregano
- Place all of the ingredients into your food processor. Blend until smooth.
- Serve with fresh veggies (my favorite is carrots) and crackers.
- If you're making this for a party, I suggest doubling the recipe.
