How I make hummus.

I make hummus about once a week.  I use a recipe from Delicious Detox by Carol Morley.  It’s an easy peasy way to make delicious hummus.  Here’s what we need:

1 (19 oz) can of chickpeas, drained (reserve the liquid) and rinsed
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon tahini (I make my own using this recipe)
Juice of 1 small lemon
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

First, add everything except the olive oil to your food processor.  Pulse until combined.


While the processor is running, slowly add the olive oil through the feed tube.  Pulse the mixture until it is smooth.  If it’s still a bit chunky after a few minutes, add some of the reserved chickpea liquid.


Delicious hummus in no time!  Goes perfect with the Quinoa crispbread I made.
