But for now, one will do. And that one is the Pioneer Woman's Classic Hummus. And let me tell you something. It's two simple words. HOMEMADE HUMMUS. Where have I been all of this time? What have I been doing? Why haven't I been making my own hummus? Don't get me wrong, Trader Joe's has some delicious hummus but homemade has stolen my heart. It's just so fresh and lovely and fluffy and yummy.
Other than it just being downright scrumptious, do you know what else I love about Hummus?
It's so stinking simple and you can eat it on anything and everything!
For example on, in, or with the following:
- PB & hummus sandwich
- Mummus Melts (that I made for Halloween)
- pita bread
- bagels/English muffins
- artichoke dip
from the Pioneer Woman
- 3 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon tahini
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 whole lemon, juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- fresh basil, parsley, or chives
- 3-5 tablespoons cold water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Throw chickpeas in the food processor.
2. Add Tahini.
3. And then everything else except for the water and olive oil. Pulse a few times until it's smooth being careful not to over mix. Add water to help blend. Add olive oil and pulse several times to incorporate.
4. Eat! Or refrigerate up to 3 days.
