I love hummus so much. Not only is it healthy, it is extremely cheap and easy to make.
RAZZLE DAZZLE HUMMUS:
2 cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained -pour liquid into a small cup!
1 garlic clove
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons tahini
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
juice of 2 large lemons
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
about 1/2 cup hot water
Place the garlic clove in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times.
Dump the rest of the ingredients in to the food processor, except for the chickpea liquid, and run for 3-4 minutes. After the first 30 seconds or so, stream in the "chickpea liquid" while the processor is still running – until you reach your desired consistency and continue to process until very smooth and creamy.
Taste for seasoning and consistency, adding a bit more liquid if needed. The hummus will firm up a bit in the fridge; make runnier than you think you’d like.
Before serving, drizzle with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts and dried parsley. Optional-sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes.
Serve with veggies, pita chips or use in place of mayo on sandwiches! Delicious. Low Fat. Cost Efficient.
