Let me start out by saying that this hummus recipe is really just a base for so many other flavor combinations. It is a simple, easy, low ingredient hummus, and you can enjoy as is, or take it in any direction. My boys absolutely love hummus, and I find it's the best way to get them to eat their veggies, plus they are getting extra protein with each bite. Now on to the recipe.
Your Basic Hummus
makes about 2 cups
2 cans no salt added chickpeas, rinsed and drained well
1/3 cup tahini sauce (sesame paste)
1 large clove garlic, minced
juice of 1 lemon
1-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (depending on consistency)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
In a food processor combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Thats it. Enjoy!
