A protein-packed and guilt-free snack to satisfy your cravings
(Contributed by Heather L. of California.)
Making your own hummus is incredibly easy—and can be less expensive than buying a pint from the grocery store. It’s also very versatile; you can blend in different ingredients to suit your tastes.
In Heather's own words:
"You can serve it with a little pool of olive oil on top if you like—yum!"
Dried chickpeas, equivalent to 16-ounce can, soaked for 24+ hours
¼ cup water
3-5 Tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
1 1/5 Tablespoons tahini
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ teaspoon non-iodized or kosher salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Cook the chickpeas until tender in water, drain then cool.
Combine all ingredients except water in blender or food processor; blend.
Add 1/4 cup of water, or enough to make the consistency to your liking.
Blend on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.
You may wish to add more salt and garlic to taste; be sure to mix it in thoroughly.
Store in an airtight container and refrigerate what you don't eat.
