Homemade Hummus

July 9, 2011

Bonjoir, blogworld! My premier post will detail my foray into creating fresh, DIY hummus (having tired of the store-bought derivatives).

To begin, I chopped fresh garlic cloves and then in a separate blender pureed organic chickpeas, fresh lemon juice, and tahini. I then added in the chopped garlic.

Breaking in the new Ninja chopper/blender, which exceeded all expectations.*

I then pureed EVOO with fresh parsley and drizzled it over the hummus.

All in all, quite delicious! (AND amazingly simple). Next time I will use a little more garlic and seasoning, but not bad for my first go around.

Here is the basic recipe:

3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 19oz can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans
2 tablespoons of tahini
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
handful of parsley
sea salt to taste

You can also sprinkle a little paprika or cumin on top, if you want to spice it up a little!

*Note: The top plastic part of the blender later started shredding, much to my dismay. Would’ve been fantastic if it weren’t for the cheap parts…
