Why eat store bought hummus when it’s so easy to make it at home? We eat this all the time as a snack or appetizer!
- 1 15 oz can of chickpeas/ garbanzo beans
- 1/3 cup tahini
- 1 tsp minced garlic, more according to your taste
- 1.5 TBS lemon juice
- 1 tsp sea salt
- small jar of roasted red peppers (you’ll only use a few)
- 1 TBS olive oil
- pita bread or chips
Drain the liquid from your canned chickpeas.
Place the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Add in red peppers (make sure they are completely drained of liquid), start with a couple and add more to your taste and the consistency you like. Blend again until smooth.
Transfer hummus to a serving bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.
Enjoy! Refrigerate leftover hummus in airtight container for up to a week.
