Introduction:

Finally, it feels like May outside.  I’m taking advantage by blogging out on our deck at home.  I have the flower boxes full of petunias and geraniums.  The sun has just set, so the air is slightly cool.  The birds are chirping, and I can hear a dribbling basketball in the distance.  Love spring!  Hoping that we have a few weeks before we are catapulted into the hot and humid Maryland summers. 

Over the last few days, I have been noshing on cucumber slices and this classic hummus.  Hummus is something that has really grown on me over the last few years.  You can buy is anywhere these days, and if you have to go store bought, I like the Sabra brand.  To me though, hummus tastes best when it is homemade, very fresh, smooth, and creamy.  To get the best consistency, I like to use a food processor. 

Resources:

  • Food processor
  • Rubber spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Storage container with lid or bowl

Procurements:

  • 15.5 oz. garbanzo beans – drained
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 3 T. tahini (yes, it’s a bit pricy, but it will last you a long time)
  • 2 T. EVOO
  • Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • A few cracks of black pepper

Operating Procedures:

Add garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, salt, garlic, and pepper to the food processor.  On high speed, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and water.  Allow to process for about 2-3 minutes to get a smooth consistency.  Scrape down the sides of processor as needed to fully combine all ingredients.  Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.

Proposals:

Great for snacking with an extra drizzle of olive oil on top, or as a sandwich spread….or by the spoonfuls.  🙂

Closing Remarks:

If you have a food processor, homemade hummus is easy to whip up.  You can easily double the batch for a crowd.
