An Easy Hummus Recipe
Ok, by popular demand, here is my recipe for Hummus that my kids just LOVE.
- 1 can (540ml) chickpeas/garbanzo beans
- 2 tsp minced garlic OR 1 to 2 cloves
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 tsp lemon juice
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2-3 tbsp water
If you already have minced garlic, combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the water in your food processor and puree 'till smooth. Add water a little at a time 'till you reach your desired consistency. I like to run the machine for a few literal minutes - I like my Hummus to be very smooth.
If you are starting with whole cloves of garlic, then you need to mince the garlic with the olive oil in the food processor first. Once done, add in rest of ingredients except for the water. Once pureed, add the water a little at a time 'till you reach your desired consistency.
Serve with raw vegetables, chips & crackers! (or if you are feeding my Lolo, then just serve with a spoon).
