If you’ve never made hummus, you don’t know what you’re missing. Store bought hummus pales in comparison. This took me about 3 minutes to make. It tastes unbelievably good and can be used as a dip, sandwich spread… whatever! So healthy and even the kids love it! I made it for a party that we’re having tonight to serve with some fresh veggies. Chips, pretzels, crackers… they all work as a delivery vehicle 🙂
2 15 ounce cans of low sodium chickpeas (One drained and rinsed, one with liquid)
1/4 cup of toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1/4 cup of water
4 garlic cloves, smashed (skin removed)
1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add everything to your Vitamix or blender. If you using a Vitamix, set to Puree and let it run. If using a blender or food processor, blend until smooth and creamy. Remove and store in a container with a lid.
