If you would have told me 1o years ago that I’d love hummus I would have thought you were nuts! The name. hummus, just sounded gross to me. But I don’t mind admitting it when I am wrong. It’s delicious! And who knew it was so easy to make?!
I love that it’s so versatile. I like using it like salsa and dipping tortilla chips in it. You can also use pita bread, veggies and even smear it on a sandwich.
So here is my take on hummus. Feel free to throw in your own flavors and make it your own!
- 1 can chickpeas, drained
- 2 Tbs olive oil
- 2 Tbs minced garlic
- 2 Tbs lemon juice
- pinch of salt
- dash of crushed red pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
- a few green olives
- Place drained chickpeas and olive oil in a food processor. Process until creamy.
- Add in the remaining ingredients and process until fully mixed.
