hummus. the homemade way.

homemade garlic hummus
the tings love us some hummus. its a go-to snack around our home but we can polish off a little $5 tub of hummus in a couple days, so we decided to try it at home to save some money and cut out any unwanted ingredients. we’re happy with the result! i wouldn’t recommend trying it right out of the blender – let it chill for a while before you taste it.
directions: simply blend all ingredients
3 tablespoons stirred tahini (we bought a jar of organic vegan at Sprouts for $8)
couple cloves of garlic, more or less depending on your love for garlic
1 (19 oz) can of garbanzo beans drained, but save 1/2 cup of the liquid to include
3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
cumin to taste
garnish & serve with a little olive oil, paprika, pine nuts, parsley flakes – anything you want.after you get that recipe down, have fun with different flavor combinations.

we just made a jalepeno + cilantro batch and its delicious!
(added one medium-sized jalepeno (no seeds) and a handful of cilantro to the above recipe – sans garlic)
