I started out the year by making my own Hummus, I have been meaning to for months. I had the day off so I read several recipes and mixed them together to make some of my own Hummus. I always read several recipes and take what sounds good from each one to make what I want. Here is the recipe for the Hummus I made.
1 can of Garbonzo beans – rinse the beans and keep the liquid from the can
1 whole lemon
Red Pepper Flakes
- Put the Garbanzo beans, juice of lemon, 2 Table Spoons Olive Oil, 1 Table Spoon Ground Cumin, Garlic, Salt & Pepper to taste into your food processor or blender.
- Blend until you get the smooth texture you desire, add in the liquid from the Garbonzo Beans as needed to get your desired consistency.
- Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for 3 weeks.
This is the base of the hummus you can enjoy as is or add anything for different flavors such as sun dried tomatoes.
Enjoy on sandwiches, veggies, as a dip, whatever you like!
