Looking for something to snack on during this quarantine? Have a random can of chickpeas, olive oil, a lemon, garlic and seasonings around??? LETS MAKE HUMMUS!
It was really really easy to do, and pretty fun, too! You can play with the recipe and add your own spin on things. Many hummus recipes call for Tahini, but this one does not.
Start out by opening the can of chickpeas and saving some liquid 3-4 tbsp. from the can. Then drain and rinse the chickpeas well.
In a food processor or blender, add the chickpeas, lemon juice, 1 large garlic clove (throw the whole thing in without chopping), salt, cumin, reserve liquid, 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Then blend until creamy and smooth!
Add more of whatever you need- we added more lemon juice, cumin and more garlic! A sprinkle of paprika for garnish on top! Then it was perfect for us!
Eat with vegetables, pita chips, pretzels or anything you’d like!
Ingredients: I followed a recipe from highlightsalongtheway.com
-1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
-3-4 tbsp. reserve juice
-1 large garlic clove
-1/4 tsp. salt
-1/2 tsp. cumin
