I know this recipe will sound and look like a lot of hummus recipes you may make or have seen or eaten or whatever….I know but listen I can’t re-invent the wheel. It is what it is…which by the way is my life’s motto…ask anyone, I am so annoying I say it all the time…as if it’s a fix all! Which it is….come on: “IT IS WHAT IT IS” . Perfect!
*This is my actual sign over my pantry’s door! (I wasn’t kidding)
This is a simple basic hummus recipe. That’s all. I just went with what I know about hummus and made it. Because I eat hummus all the time! I know what it’s made of and I don’t need 15 different ways to make it….just “spruce” it up a little!
1 15-oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained
2 garlic cloves minced or grated
3 tablespoon Tahini (sesame paste)
3 tablespoon olive oil (plus 1 tablespoon more to serve)
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Splash hot sauce (optional, I like the “tanginess” of hot sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste
Toasted sesame seeds (optional, about 1 teaspoon)
Grab your food processor and fill it with all these lovely ingredients (except the 1 tablespoon olive oil and toasted sesame seeds).
Push the button and voila! Put your hummus in your serving bowl and drizzle with the extra 1 tablespoon olive oil. Top with toasted sesame seeds if using.
How to “spruce” up your basic hummus, top with:
~1-2 tablespoon of basil pesto
~chopped black and green olives
~chopped roasted red peppers
~chopped tomatoes and red onions tossed with olive oil
~1 jalapeno pepper finely diced
ETC…. the possibilities are endless
