Hummus

Hummus is a delicious snack that’s easy to make and good for you. Don’t buy the stuff in the deli aisle, throw together your own in 5 minutes.

Ingredients:

couple cloves of garlic

1 can garbanzo beans, drained  (or soak 1 cup dried beans overnight, drain, cook until tender)

1 fat tablespoon tahini (or more to taste)

zest and juice of 1 lemon

chopped parsley

high-quality extra virgin olive oil

salt

With the motor running, drop garlic cloves into food processor. Add garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon, and parsley. Add enough olive oil to make the texture a little creamy. Taste, and adjust seasonings. Keeps for at least a week in the refrigerator.

Variations:

add 1 roasted red pepper

add smoked paprika

add a wedge or 2 of preserved lemon, innards and seeds removed

Note: A batch fits perfectly in a mini-prep. Since there’s no feed tube, simply chop the garlic alone before adding other ingredients.
