My basic hummus recipe is so simple, it occupies a Post-it Note in my spice cupboard, rather than a page in my recipe book. I took some to work in my bentos, and my co-workers were so impressed, they wanted the recipe. So here it is:
- 2 cloves garlic - roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup water
- 14 oz can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) rinsed and drained
- 1/2 cup of Tahini
- 1 tsp sea salt (or table salt, if you've run out like I have)
Serve with home grown sprouts for a delicious, healthy snack! Pita pockets, carrot sticks and tortillas browned in a skillet are all great ways to get the hummus from the plate to your mouth.
Thanks to mediterrasian.com where I originally found this recipe.
