|Today I made the best hummus I've ever tasted. Here's the recipe. (I just used a blender, as I have never even owned a food processor.)|
One thing I did differently; I sauteed the 3 cloves of garlic in 2 table spoons of olive oil, and added the oil and garlic to the mixture instead of just 2 cloves of garlic as called for in this recipe.
2 cups canned chick peas, drained or the same amount fresh cooked
2/3 cup tahini
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 cloves mashed garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
parsley for garnish
Place chick peas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cumin in food processor. Mix until smooth. The hummus may be a bit thick, so thin it out by adding a bit of oil or liquid from the can of chick peas.
Using the liquid from the can obviously makes it a low fat hummus recipe, but the oil adds a lovely richness to the hummus that is my preference.
Just before serving sprinkle chopped parsley on top.
