My mother has been making homemade hummus weekly for a few years now. When I was home in NY last month she taught me how to make it and now it’s been my staple lunch with pita chips and veggies. I bought some roasted red peppers and chopped those finely into it as well. Really delicious.
Would you like to learn now to make it? It seems daunting but it’s super simple
Add one can of drained garbanzo beans to the food processor; but when you drain it reserve the juice. You’ll need about half of it later.
Enter Tahini sauce. Mmm. Add 2 T in with your garbanzo beans. They carry this stuff at our local Trader Joe’s.
A sprinkle of garlic powder, a little salt and pepper. Then the juice of one lemon
Blend. You’ll find that you’ll need to add a little bit of that reserved garbanzo bean juice. How much of it depends on how thick you like your hummus (we like it super thick).
Blend until smooth. Taste it for seasonings.
1 can garbanzo beans with reserved juice
