I love making hummus because it never fails to shock me how incredibly easy and inexpensive AND delicious it is to make it at home. I know hummus typically contains tahini (and lots of salt) but I’ve grown to really love this very simple recipe – you taste each and every ingredient!
Simply Homemade Hummus
- 1 can chickpeas
- juice from 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2-3 cloves of garlic
- 1/4-1/2 cup of water (or reserve the water from chickpeas)
- My toppings of choice: fresh parsley, pinch of cayenne pepper
Add all ingredients into a Cuisinart or blender and mix until smooth. If you prefer a chunkier hummus, mix until slightly chunky. Top with parsley, cayenne, or anything that sounds good to you!
