-1 clove of garlic, smashed and peeled
-1 15oz can of garbanzo beans or chickpeas, rinsed
-3 tablespoon of lemon juice
-3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
-1 tablespoon tahini
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-Freshly ground pepper to taste
-1 or more tablespoons of water
-Turn your food processor on and drop the garlic in there, mincing it up really well. If you don’t have a food processor you can make this in a blender.
-Add your chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, salt and pepper.
-Process until you reach the desired consistency, I like it very smooth. You may have to add one or two tablespoons of water to get there.
YUM!! Hummus is great because you can eat it with anything. Veggies, crackers, a salad, in a sandwich, in a wrap, with falafel, or just a side with some whole grains. A great way to get more vegetables in your diet is to cut all the veggies you want and store them in the fridge so they’re ready for you to eat.
