TRADITIONAL HUMMUS

Ingredients:

2 15oz cans of unsalted garbanzo beans, drained, reserve liquid

2 Tbsp Tahini paste

2+ Tbsp lemon juice

1 clove garlic, or more if you like

2-3 tsp sea salt

Pepper

Paprika

1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil


Directions:

1. With the blade running in your food processor add garlic clove/cloves and let them spin.

2. Stop processor and add beans, tahini, lemon juice and half the salt, and pepper. Turn processor on low and slowing add 1-2 Tbsp reserved liquid.** Increase speed to high, and add as much liquid as you like. The longer you process the smoother the hummus will get. Salt to taste.

3. Place hummus in serving dish and sprinkle with a dash of paprika and drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top. 4. Serve with fresh veggies or toasted pita bread.


** at this point you can add other ingredients such as; roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and basil, or switch the lemon for lime and add avocado cilantro and chili pepper. The combinations are really only limited to your imagination!
