Homemade Hummus
 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 15-oz can chickpeas (sometimes called garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup Organic Tahini (more or less to taste)
  • Juice from 2-3 lemons
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed or grated with a microplane (depending on desired texture)
  • Water
Instructions
  1. Put chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, EVOO, and garlic into a food processor. Start by pulsing, then puree until it reaches the texture you like.
  2. Taste and add more tahini, lemon juice, or salt to adjust the flavor as needed. You can add a little more EVOO for a creamier texture.
  3. If you like your hummus chunky, you can stop here. If you like it thinner and creamier, put a little water in the can from the chickpeas and add a little at a time while the processing until you reach your desired consistency.
  4. Refrigerate, and when you're ready to serve, sprinkle with paprika and fresh parsley, and drizzle with a little more EVOO. Serve with pita chips or veggies to dip
