Easy Hummus Recipe: Garlic and Lemon Make it Happen!
When it comes to hummus, like quite a few things actually, my husband and I have very different tastes. His favorite hummus ingredient, and the flavor he wants to dominate, is garlic. Mine? Lemon…. most definitely lemon.
This particular hummus recipe is one that keeps us both happily dipping our crackers, toast triangles, and veggies.
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 + 1 TBS for drizzling cup extra virgin olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, mashed and chopped finely (no big clumps!)
2 (15 oz) cans of chickpeas, drained
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
Combine the tahini and olive oil well – if possible, use a food processor and process until smooth. A blender also works in a pinch. Add the garlic, garbanzo beans, lemon juice, water, and salt. Combine until smooth.
Taste and add more lemon juice or salt if needed.
When serving, I like to add a little drizzle of extra olive oil and a bit of coarse sea salt. Looks pretty and adds a little more flavor.
