Hummus is one of those foods that I like to keep on hand. It makes the perfect snack, and I love to serve it when entertaining, too.
I’m not a fan of most store-bought hummus, however. It just doesn’t taste like the real thing. Plus, why buy from a store, when it’s so quick and easy to make?
Today I’m sharing my favorite hummus recipe, plus two easy variations. You are going to love it!
Quick & Easy Hummus
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, lightly drained
- 1/4 cup tahini
- Juice from half a lemon
- Salt to taste
Place the garlic clove in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped.
I like to serve the hummus drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with a dash of smoked paprika.
Pita bread or chips and fresh veggies are the perfect accompaniment.
