Simple Homemade Hummus!

Ok, I love hummus. It’s the perfect accessory for some carrots or celery! I only have it in moderation, due to its addictive properties :-). Chickpeas are an excellent source for protein, fiber & surprisingly…calcium!! You can buy it in the store for like $6 tho & that’s crazy! I make this for like $2, and it’s far more delicious! I like the idea of knowing exactly what’s put in it & that its made in my own kitchen! I will never ever buy hummus pre made in the store again! Try it out for yourself!

Simple Hummus:

Makes about 2 1/2 cups!

2 cans chickpeas, drained & rinsed
1/2 cup tahini (I used brads organic)
Splash Evoo (used to thin consistency, I used about 3 tbsp, mine was still thick)
Salt & pepper to taste
Splash Lemon juice to taste
3 cloves minced garlic (next time I’m adding extra!)
Dash of cumin (be careful, it’s easy to overdo!)

Add chickpeas & tahini in food processor & pulse until it starts to get creamy! Add remaining ingredients, pulse to combine! Add more olive oil if you prefer a thinner consistency. I liked mine extra lemony & extra garlicy! This filled a whole mason jar to the top! About 2 1/2 cups! Store in fridge! Enjoy!!!! 🙂
