Traditional Hummus

Traditional Hummus

Yield: 1 1/3 CUPS
Active Time: 15 MINUTES
Total Time:  15 MINUTES
Ingredients:
  • 1 (15 OZ) an chickpeas or 2 cups drained, cooked chickpeas
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Tahini
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice, plus more as needed
  • 1 small garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
Directions:
  1. If using canned chickpeas, drain the chickpeas into a strainer, reserving the liquid from the can. If time allows, remove the skins from each of the chickpeas. This will make your hummus much smoother.
  2. Place the chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor.
  3. Puree hummus until it is very smooth, about 5-10 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to integrate any large chunks.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings to taste. If your hummus is stiffer than you'd like, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the reserved chickpea liquid and blend until desired consistency is achieved.
  5. Scrape the hummus into a bowl and serve with pita or vegetables.
