Easy Hummus

Leave a comment

Hummus is one of my favorites. I can eat it with pita chips, veggies, Wheat Thins, on sandwiches, with a spoon (I’m kidding – maybe)… the list goes on and on. The one thing I hate about hummus? Having to buy tahini. I came up with this shortcut version that doesn’t require any tahini at all. Woo!!

Easy Hummus

2 cans garbanzo beans, drained and liquid reserved
1 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon salt
3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon olive oil
Paprika to garnish, optional

  1. Place garbanzo beans, lemon juice, salt and garlic into a food processor. Blend, slowly adding in sesame oil and olive oil. Add in reserved liquid from the garbanzo beans until desired consistency.
  2. Place into a serving bowl and sprinkle with paprika to garnish.
