Easy Hummus Recipe
I love hummus, but why is it so ridiculously expensive? $3 - $4 for 8 ounces of ground up garbanzo beans! So, grab an inexpensive can of garbanzo beans, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and a food processor...for less than $1 you can make your own hummus!
- 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt, to taste
- Combine garbanzos, olive oil and garlic and lemon juice in a food processor - puree until smooth.
- Add salt if desired.
- Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving.
- Best served at room temperature.
Serve with pita chips or fresh veggies. Hummus is also delicious on my Mediterranean Pizza - see the recipe index on the left side of this page.
