This week we tried something I've been wanting to do for a while, make hummus. I'd bought the dry beans a while back and cooked them up, but I tossed the in the freezer because I didn't think I could pull it off. This week we have been enjoying all kids of great veggies from our bountiful baskets delivery, and I decided we might as well add home made hummus to the mix.
This recipe comes from HERE. (of course I've tweaked it.)
2 1/2 cups cooked garbanzo beans
1/4 cup water
3 Tbs. tahini
1/4 cup lemon juice, or juice from one lemon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, halved
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tsp cumin
Place the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic and cumin in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, adding olive oil as it blends. I also added a 1/4 cup water. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.
Drizzle olive oil over the garbanzo bean mixture.
Now my biggest trouble is keeping the kids from eating it all!
