All you need is a few simple ingredients and a blender to make your own delicious hummus! This recipe is cheaper and healthier than store-bought brands (less oil; zero preservatives!) and could not be easier to make! I also love how you can control how much oil, garlic and spices go in. Use as a snack, a dip for veggies, or a spread on sandwiches. I even like including a dollop in scrambled eggs for extra protein and flavor!
1. In a blender, or by hand, chop the garlic. Pour garlic and garbanzo beans into a blender.
2. Pour lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, salt, and optional spices into the blender. Blend until creamy and well mixed.
3. Add additional bean liquid to get desired texture and add additional spices, salt and lemon to taste.
4. Optional: chill in the fridge for 15-20 minutes, or as long as you can stand the wait. I think this hummus tastes even better the next day, once the flavors have had a chance to marinate together for a little while!
I served mine with fresh sliced carrots and cucumber. I also love eating hummus with warm pita bread. Makes a great lunch or healthy snack! Hummus also makes a great sandwich spread—I’ll use it instead of mustard or mayonnaise.
