From Middle Eastern origins, hummus is a great source of valuable protein, fiber and antioxidants.
It can be used as a sandwich spread (although I’ve never tried this), a veggie dip or served with crackers … but my favorite way to indulge is with pita chips or corn tortilla chips. (Look for the ones where there are only three ingredients listed: whole corn, safflower oil and salt.)
This is a very simple recipe – from my friend, Kattaryna – and definitely my favorite of all hummus recipes. See what you think.
1 15oz can garbanzo beans (reserve liquid)
2 Tbsp Tahini
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1. Place all ingredients, plus half the liquid, into a food processor or blender.
2. “Puree. Eat. Smile,” says my friend.
