Homemade Hummus

14 June 2013 No Comment

So much better than store bought! There is no oil… this is a healthier choice than the brands in the grocery stores.

Ingredients:

2 cans garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained.
1/4 c Kalmata olives, chopped
2 to 3 large garlic cloves, chopped
vegetable broth
1 Tbs tahini, optional
1 to 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice, optional

Place beans, olives and garlic in a food processor and process for about 2 minutes, scraping sides as necessary. Add tahini if you want, and enough vegetable broth to make hummus smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. Process until smooth.

Serve with baked pita chips. You can use store bought… or I like to make my own. I also serve with various cut up vegetables (carrots, celery, cucumber, zucchini, etc.). Can also be used as a spread on a wrap. A very versatile spread that can be used for snacks, sandwich spread and is completely vegan!

Options:

You can also add chopped onion or red pepper or roasted pine nuts or chopped spinach. Use your imagination!

Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.
