Easy, Delicious Hummus

Hummus is easily one of the most ideal snack foods to have around the house because it’s healthy, but tastes rich and indulgent. It tastes good on nearly everything: veggies, sandwiches, pita, crackers, bagels, chips, grilled chicken . . . the list goes on. Most people buy store-bought hummus for convenience, but it is so very simple to make your own hummus at home. Homemade hummus tastes so much better than even the best store-bought options. The only downside to making it yourself is that it disappears quickly. Good thing it’s easy and economical to whip up another batch! 


¼ c. tahini, well stirred

Juice from 1 large lemon

1 15-oz can of garbanzo beans

1 garlic clove

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. cumin


2 Tbsp. water

1 tsp. paprika

1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

Put tahini and lemon juice into the food processor and process for about 1 minute, or until smooth. Add olive oil, garlic, cumin and process again for about 30 seconds. Add the drained garbanzo beans and process for 1-2 minutes, or until very smooth. Add water, 1 Tbsp. at time, if the hummus is too thick. Process again for 30 seconds. Add salt to taste. Serve in a bowl, drizzled in a little olive oil, and top with paprika and fresh parsley.
