About the Recipe
1 – 15oz. can garbanzo beans (a.k.a. chick peas), save the liquid
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup tahini
1 clove OR 1 head freshly roasted garlic (to taste)
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ - 1 teaspoon cumin (to taste)
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
2 – 3 tablespoons reserved garbanzo bean liquid
Drain the garbanzo beans. Keep the liquid and set aside.
Add all the ingredients, except the reserved liquid, in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Add enough of the reserved bean juice to make it the consistency that you like.
Drizzle a little olive oil over the top before serving. Serve with fresh cut up vegetables or your favorite cracker or flat bread.
Seriously, if you want something quick, something tasty, and something that will stick to your ribs, this homemade hummus is the way to go!
*Note: We like food savory and flavorful, so we used the full head of garlic and 1 teaspoon of cumin. So good!
