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
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.
