With the recent Sabra hummus recall, there’s no better time to start making homemade hummus. This recipe takes minutes to make in the food processor and tastes better than any store-bought version. Betayvon!
2 garlic cloves
1 15-oz can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained (save the liquid), or 1 cup soaked and cooked dried beans
3 T cup of tahini paste, available by the jar
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Up to 1/4 cup water drained from chickpeas (to desired consistency)
3 T olive oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Handful of cilantro (optional)
1 deseeded jalepeño pepper (optional)
In a food processor, combine the garlic, garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, water, cilantro and olive oil. Process until smooth. Add salt, starting at a half a teaspoon, to taste. Makes about 1.5 cups.
