Easiest, yummiest hummus

Hummus is a staple in our house, and it's incredibly easy to make, so there's no need for the store bought stuff.  

1 16 oz. can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained, with 1/4 cup of the liquid reserved
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini paste (I've made it without the tahini paste and it's still good)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt

Drain the chickpeas and reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid.  Combine the liquid with all of the other ingredients in a bowl and use an immersion blender, or combine in a food processor.  Blend until you have a smooth hummus.

You can fancy-up your hummus with any of these delicious add-ins:

  • Roasted red peppers
  • Artichokes
  • Spices--cumin, paprika, chili powder
  • Sun dried tomatoes
