2 cans garbanzo beans
juice of one lemon
5 cloves of garlic (or more!)
1/2 c. tahini
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cumin (at least!)
black pepper (lots and lots!)
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tbsp olive oil

Drain beans, reserving the liquid. Add all ingredients to food processor, and process till smooth. Add reserved garbanzo bean liquid until desired consistency. Sometimes I'll add more tahini or spices depending on the taste. We usually serve hummus with saltines and baby carrots, but you can use whatever you want!

  1. I was just going to ask you about hummus! your a genius!

  2. Let me know how it goes when you make it! It really is to your own liking. Like, you can have it oilier or dryer or less garlic-y or more cumin-y. Blend stuff together, then taste test. =)
