basic hummus

This is one of the best things I've whipped up in under five minutes in a long time. Seriously five minutes and seriously delicious. I'm trying to undo some of the damage from last week & the weekend {lots of eating out, a little too much celebrating, and not a lot of working out} with a healthy lunch option for the week. I opted for a fresh sandwich of sorts: whole wheat bagel, hummus, a slice of muenster cheese, tomato & cucumber. Instead of buying homemade hummus I decided to make my own and it truly makes a difference! So smooth, creamy, and flavorful. 




Here's what you'll need...
15 oz. can of chickpeas
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons tahini sauce
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

Here's what to do...
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor. Store in an airtight container. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over the top before serving (optional).

  4. Homemade hummus is my favorite. I actually leave out the tahini and sub cumin. You won't miss a thing. :)
