Hummus

Just made this yesterday and it’s fantastic! I’m kinda excited to see all the new uses I’m gonna find for this stuff. Made with fresh garlic from my garden, of course.

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and liquid reserved
3 tbs tahini
3/4 cups reserved bean liquid
3 tbs lemon juice
1/2 tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
pinch cumin
pinch black pepper
1/4 tsp mediterranean seasoning (I have a gyros spice mix I bought in Germany to use for this)

Throw it in a blender and blend till creamy. You can use more or less liquid from the beans to make it the consistency you like. 3/4 was what I used which is about the minimum that my blender liked, I used Mr. Hot Stuff’s magic bullet blender.

So good… great with triscuits, veggies, and I’m thinking if I made a runnier one it would make a good pizza sauce… lots of good fats and healthy protein in this stuff, especially when eaten with a whole grain cracker or pita.

And it’s CHEAP!
