Description

This is the EASIEST way to make delicious, creamy hummus that costs very little and uses no tahini (sesame seed paste).

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 Oz. Can) Garbanzo Beans (a.k.a. Chick Peas), Drained And Rinsed Well Or You Can Substitute Dried Beans That Have Been Soaked And Cooked To Make It Really Cheaply
  • ½ cups Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin (don't Skip This)
  • 1 clove Garlic, Chopped
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil

Preparation

Put all ingredients except olive oil into a food processor. I tried this once before with a blender and it really doesn’t work since it all gets stuck, but if you are patient (I’m not) you could make it work. You just need to keep opening the top and mixing the beans up inside the blender. While you are running the food processor, open the little hole at the top and stream in the oil. This will result in the creamy texture of delicious hummus. Depending on how you like your consistency, you will use more or less oil.

When it’s finally done, you need to have a little taste to figure out if it needs more garlic (I say the more garlic, the better, so we usually use 2 cloves), salt, lemon, oil, etc. to suit your family’s preferences. If you make this with dried beans, you will have a TON of hummus. It freezes beautifully. We like our hummus on crackers, carrot sticks, homemade pita bread or chips, and pretzels.

Oh this looks wonderful! My boys are allergic to sesame so tahini is out. Thank you for this, I can’t wait to try it!
