Hummus Revisited

We’ve mentioned hummus a few times before, but I’ve been making a lot of it lately so here is my new recipe for an old favorite.  It’s way better than the packaged stuff! 

Basic Hummus

  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 2-4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini
  • couple shakes of ground cumin powder
  • couple shakes of cayenne powder
  • couple shakes of garlic powder (or 1-2 cloves)
  • couple teaspoons of salt

Throw it all together in a food processor and add just a touch of water to get it all moving along nicely.  Puree to your desired consistency.  It’s lovely with fresh veggies or try it with some won ton chips.
