Fresh Homemade Hummus

Hummus: The perfect healthy snack, starter or side dish. Easy to make, tasty, and great to have on hand just in case  you get a bit hungry and want a satisfying quick bite of guilt-free deliciousness.

I had never made hummus before but I had a sudden craving for it a couple weeks ago and it seemed easy enough to make. Just a few ingredients were called for, and I had most on hand, so I threw together some things (with a few modifications) and it came out perfect! Just made it again today and substituted the oven-baked wheat tortilla strips with carrots sticks.

What you’ll need: 

1 can of garbanzo beans

1/4 cup of lemon juice (I love the zesty lemon taste so I used a whole one)

1 teaspoon of cumin (maybe a tad more)

Crushed mini sesame seeds (optional)

2 tablespoons of olive oil (less if you use more lemon)

A dash of salt

Sprinkle with paprika

*Add a parsley garnish or a drizzle of oil for a tasty looking side or starter

    • It makes for a perfect snack 😉 I hope you like it. Another ingredient you can add (if you have access to it) is a little bit of Tahini sauce.
