EASY (BUT GREAT) HUMMUS!
DescriptionHummus , I imagine, is in every single grocery store on the planet now. There are about as many types of hummus as there are people who enjoy it as well. You'd never know for the prices it sells for in stores that this is one of the easiest, and relatively healthy things you can make at home. It'll be just as good as the stores as well!
This recipe is the base for all great hummus. I like to add a few chopped up ghost peppers along the way but you non-spicy humans can leave it as is or add anything else you might like!
Just keep in mind if you're added alot of liquid flavors you're going to end up with a runnier hummus so you might need to compensate with less water for example. If you're adding more solid flavorings, maybe you'll need more water to adjust. Just eyeball it and use your judgement. It's really hard to mess up!
InstructionsPre-Setup: Do you have tons of free time on your hands and you want to make your hummus slightly smoother like you find in the stores? Once you drain and rinse your canned chickpeas and then one by one shell each of them. Is it worth it? Nope, but ill let you make your own grownup decisions!
1) In your food processor or blender combine the Tahini and Lemon juice. Ideally you want to blend it until it's smooth and even a little whipped up.
2) Add the garlic, cumin, salt, and olive oil to the processor and blend that well once again.
3) If you didn't in the pre-setup, now's the time to drain your cans of chickpeas and then rinse them as best you can. I suggest using a strainer and running water over them while stirring them with your hand.
4) If you were adding any flavorings I recommend putting them in now and blending them until its all consistent. Dont worry, by the way, if you have to keep pushing the ingredients to the bottom of your blender, this is pretty normal. You might need to do that on a few steps.
5) Add the chickpeas and blend it all well. You want to get it as smooth as possible. You now, essentially, have hummus. If you find it's the consistency you like, don't use the water, if you want it a little less solid, use whatever water you need (a bit at a time).
6) Decorate it up with extra oil, some paprika, or whatever else you like. Go wild! I lke to eat it with naan!
