Homemade hummus

I’ve been meaning to try to make my own hummus for a while now. I finally remembered to buy tahini and gave this recipe from Simple Recipes a twist. I roasted half the chick peas for a little extra flavor and it turned out great!

  • 2 cans chick peas – 1 roasted, 1 rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2/3 cups tahini
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Add all the ingredients together in a blender and puree until smooth. I like to use the immersion blender for easy clean up.

Use as a dip with crackers or veggies, or use as a spread on sandwiches instead of mayonnaise.
