Basic Hummus

Here is a recipe for a dip or spread that is super simple and very healthy for you. I like it with pita chips, but use it as a salad topping and as a condiment on my burgers.

  • 1 16oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup liquid from can of chickpeas
  • 3-5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Put all of the above ingredients in a food processor or blended and blend to the consistency you desire. It should be about the consistency of peanut butter, but if you don’t want it that thick you can add more chickpea juice to thin it out if desired.

As this is the basic Hummus recipe you can experiment with adding roasted red peppers to it or roasted garlic and oregano to really amp up the flavour and create a signature dip of your own.
