Hummus

One of my favorite things... Hummus!




It is so rich and creamy and loaded with protein and healthy fats. Perfect as a appetizer or snack served with vegetables and whole wheat pita bread! So, today I wanted to share with you my homemade version of this delicious dip! Super simple to make, you will never buy the grocery store version again!

Hummus Dip


Ingredients
  • 2 - 15 oz cans of chickpeas
  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons red peper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon coriander 
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
Directions
Rinse chickpeas under cold water in a colander, discarding liquid in can. Place chickpeas into food processor.


Add remaining ingredients to food processor and blend until smooth. If mixture looks too thick, add a bit more water and/or olive oil, one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
don't forget the garlic!!
Note: consistency will be thicker than the typical store bought version.

One combined, taste and alter seasonings to your taste preference.

Serve with warm whole wheat pita bread and a side of vegetables!



This recipe can be adapted in many different ways! Add a roasted red pepper, or roasted garlic to make new flavors!
