I didn’t realize how easy it was to make your own hummus at home, until I saw Martha Stewart on the “Today” show recently. I love hummus and it’s so healthy for you, especially when served with vegetables!
- 2 cans (15 ounces) organic garbanzo beans
- 1/4 cup liquid from the can of garbanzos*
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Sea salt
Save the liquid from the garbanzo beans. Rinse the beans thoroughly. Place them in the food processor (I used my blender) along with 1/4 cup reserved liquid from the beans. Add lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cayenne pepper and salt to taste (approximately 1 teaspoon). Blend until smooth. Serve with pita chips, fresh vegetables or whatever you like!
*I found that I needed to add more liquid.
