Hummus

Recipe:

2 Cups Garbanzo beans, already soaked(link to basic beans), cooked, and cooled down

2 cloves garlic, peeled

1 ½ tsp. sea salt

Juice of 1-2 lemons, depending on how juicy they are

2 T. water (or more)

½ C Tahinni

Instructions:

Put all ingredients in a blender/food processor and blend well. The final product should be creamy and smooth. Serve at room temperature and drizzled with olive oil.

Enjoy with pita bread or stick veggies.

Notes:

Can be stored in refrigerator for up to a week, make sure to drizzle olive oil over the hummus while being stored.

Hummus is quite easy to make and easy to adjust consistency or flavor; if too runny, add more tahinni, If too thick, add more water or lemon juice. You may need more salt.
