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.


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


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.


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.
