  • Method: Food Processor
  • Cuisine: Mediterranean

Ingredients

  • One 15 ounce can ( ~ 2 cups) drained canned chickpeas (or cook your own)
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced & sautéed
  • 3 Tbsp e.v. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Bring a pan to medium heat.  Add minced garlic and cook ~ 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.  Don’t let the garlic brown as it will taste bitter.
  • Add all ingredients into food processor or blender. Blend until smooth (let the food processor run for at least a minute or two).  Scrape down the sides and run the processor again.  Add more water or Lemon Juice to make creamier or tangier if desired.
  • Add sea salt to taste and drizzle a little olive oil over the top. Spread over or use as a dip for bread and veggies.  Happy Eating!  Beckie

Notes

  • Don’t want to dirty a pan?  Skip sauteing the garlic and add it in raw.
  • Add pomegranate kernels or toasted pine nuts to the top if you want to up your game.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • An affordable and great food processor to puree the hummus.
  • Vitamix blender (low profile to fit under the cabinets) for when you want to really puree the heck out of something.
