Starting the year out right - Homemade Hummus

Happy 2011!   As I get ready to head to the gym, I wanted to post a quick and easy recipe for Homemade Hummus that is just as good for you as it is delicious.   Always try to keep a few cans of Chick Peas in the pantry and a jar a Tahini too!

Homemade Hummus

Ingredients:
  • 1 16 oz. can chickpeas, drained but liquid reserved
  • 1/4 C chickpea liquid
  • 3 clove garlic
  • 5 T fresh lemon juice
  • 2 T Tahini
  • 1 t sea salt
  • 2 T olive oil
  • Paprika
Directions:   In a blender or food processor, mix chickpeas with 1/4 C of their liquid then add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini and sea salt.   Blend until smooth.

To serve, place into bowl and drizzle with the 2 T olive oil and dust with paprika.   Serve with crackers, warm pita or naan bread or fresh vegetables.

I've never made home made hummus, but you make it sound so easy, and it looks so good. I'll have to give it a try.
