Here is a very simple hummus recipe that is delicious as is or as a base for adding other flavors.
First, you need these ingredients
1 can of chick peas (garbanzo beans) reserve liquid
Juice of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp Tahini
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt, or to taste
Add everything, except the reserved liquid, to a food processor or blender and blend until desired consistency adding the reserved liquid just a little at a time if needed. I usually only use about 1-2 Tbsp in all.
I take half of the batch out for Sebastian and add a little more distinguished flavor for myself.
1/2 tsp of ground cumin and 1/4 tsp hot madras curry powder
Mix this in for an Indian flavor! Thanks Rhea for this delicious idea!
