A Matter Of Taste...
I LOVE LOVE LOVE hummus - it is one of all time favorite snacks and ever so easy to make.
A “healthy” hit at tailgates, community events, lunch meetings, and as a pre-meal snack.
Best served with fresh veggies like sweet peppers, cucumbers, carrots, broccoli, and celery.
GARLIC HUMMUS RECIPE
🥕1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas or 1 1/2 cups (250 grams) cooked chickpeas
🥕¼ cup (60 ml) fresh lemon juice (1 large lemon)
🥕¼ cup (60 ml) well-stirred tahini
🥕2 tablespoons (30 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
🥕½ tsp salt
🥕1 small garlic clove, minced
🥕½ teaspoon ground cumin
🥕2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 ml) water
🥕Dash ground paprika, for serving.
️In the bowl of a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for 1 minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for 30 seconds more. This extra time helps “whip” or “cream” the tahini, making the hummus smooth and creamy.
️Add the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, and a ½ teaspoon of salt to the whipped tahini and lemon juice. Process for 30 seconds, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process another 30 seconds or until well blended.
️Open, drain, and rinse the chickpeas. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1minute. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl, then add remaining chickpeas and process until thick and smooth; 1-2 minutes.
️Most likely the hummus will be too thick or still have tiny bits of chickpea. To fix this, with the food processor turned on, slowly add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water until you reach the perfect consistency.
️Taste for salt and adjust as needed.
️Serve hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and dash of paprika.
️Store homemade hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate up to one week.
