Homemade Hummus

  • 2 cans (14.5 oz) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt & pepper
  • Cold Water
  • Olive Oil

Combine the garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, lemon and seasonings into a food processor or blender.

Blend, and add cold water and olive oil, one Tbsp at a time, until you reach the consistency you prefer.

Serve with pita chips, tortilla chips, or assorted veggies!
