I love hummus! It’s the perfect dip for chips or raw veggies. It’s so easy and cheap to make, compared to the store-bought variety. And you can ad-lib to make your own flavor combinations that taste way better! Here’s one simple version that tastes great if you like garlic. But be warned: you will have garlic breath after eating this!
1 15-oz. cans of chickpeas (I like Eden Organic variety)
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ cup tahini
5 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup fresh basil, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pinch cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whir away until smooth. Add water if needed.
