I recently tried hummus and I really liked it. I know, I’m behind the times. It’s because I’m a picky eater. I like food that tastes good. You can tell me something is good for me, but if it tastes like it’s good for me, I might politely eat it in front of you, but then, I’ll never eat it again. (Who let me become a parent?)
When I saw this pin about making hummus, I got a can of garbanzo beans, whipped out my food processor and went to work…
I roasted garlic
While the garlic was cooling, I shelled the garbanzo beans. I read in a few other hummus making blogs that it comes out creamier if you do that. It only took me a few minutes.
I squeezed the garlic into the food processor with the beans, lemon juice and a bit of kosher salt and watched it become the consistency of peanut butter.
Then, I drizzled the olive oil in while it was spinning. Stopped to scrape down the sides, added some more oil and then, I tasted it.
Victory! It was tastier and lighter than the store bought brand!
It was so good, in fact, that I had to take it away from Cat (hummus lover) so that we would have some for today as well.
Over all, a great, simple, inexpensive recipe for hummus. I think I’ll try tossing in some roasted red peppers next time.
47 more to go! This is fun!!
