Homemade Hummus

Hi guys! 

Today I am sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes! Homemade hummus! Fun Fact about me: I loveee hummus. Chickpeas are one of my favorite foods. Blend them into creamy goodness & I can eat a whole plate! I’ve been known to go to restaurants and order the hummus & veggie appetizer as my meal because it’s just THAT good. But also sometimes the only vegan thing on the menu…

Anyway, I started making this recipe last year when my dad pointed out how much money I was spending on hummus & he had a point! I love Sabra, but I would eat it so often that I was buying about two containers a week! Making my own has been wayyy cheaper & the taste is still amazing. It literally only takes a few minutes & a few ingredients! 

Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas

Garlic clove 

Lemon juice

Tahini or sesame seed oil 

Paprika

Salt

Olive oil

Cumin

Water

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Serves: 6

I didn’t include any measurements because I’ve found it tastes best with a little bit of this, & a lil’ bit of that! You can find the original Pinterest recipe here if you want exact measurements. I normally use 2 cans of chickpeas because I like to make large quantities, & I think it blends better with more. I would suggest using a food processor because chopping the chickpeas is important for creating the creamy, smooth consistency.
