Hummus Among Us

There is nothing easier than making your own hummus! You can make so many different types and it is so good for you. This is a basic recipe I make and you can add in what every you feel like having. Peppers, artichoke hearts, spinach, roasted garlic, roasted peppers, See I could keep going but I wont. Here is my favorite all around recipe.

1 Can chick peas strained & rinsed well ( also called Garbanzo beans you want to rinse the salt from the canning. Using fresh beans is best but i’m going for the quick version)
2 Tablespoons Tahini
1 Garlic clove minced
1 Lemon (juice & zest save the zest for garnish)
fresh cracked pepper
chives for garnish (optional)
Olive Oil (about 3 tablespoons but more as needed to get to desired consistency, I like it very smooth)

*Put it all in a food processor and blend until desired thickness.
*drizzle in olive oil as you go very slowly and when you like the texture, you are done!
*put in a nice serving bowl and put out some dipping favorites. In our house its pretzel chips & carrots.
Some other dippers are bell pepper slices in all colors, celery, pita bread, cucumber slices, zucchini slices

    Pretty presentation, looks delicious. I’m sick in bed, can you bring me a little plate of that with a small glass of wine? Ok, maybe I’m not THAT sick. 😉
