Hummus is a delicious dip that goes great with chips and veggies. I always serve hummus at parties and it's a huge hit. You can even use it as a spread on sandwiches. Hummus is a lot healthier than most dips and spreads and it'll keep you full for a longer time. You can buy hummus at many grocery stores, but I personally think that homemade hummus tastes much better. It's very easy to make so give it a try and you'll see that nothing beats homemade! You can find tahini sauce at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods or any ethnic market.
14 oz can of chickpeas
1/2 cup tahini sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon salt
2 cloves of garlic
parsley for garnish
Drain chickpeas in a little bowl, keep liquid.
In a food processor or blender, combine chickpeas and garlic. Process until you have a smooth paste. If paste is not smooth, add 2 tablespoons of the liquid you saved from draining the chickpeas.
Add the tahini, lemon juice, salt and keep processing until you have a smooth texture. You can also add the lemon juice and salt to taste. Some people like more of each and some like less. The measurements that I have listed are what tastes the best to me.
If hummus is too thick, you can add more of the drained liquid from the chickpeas or add lemon juice.
