3 cloves minced garlic (I just use the jars of minced garlic)
1 can 15 ounce garbanzo beans ( drain the liquid but save it for blending)
3 Tblsp of Tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 Tblsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp sea salt
Blend it all in a blender. Themixture should be moist and spreadable - if it is too dry add some of the reserved bean liquid.
*Ways we like to eat hummus
- on baked falafel sandwiches
- with boiled eggs and warm wheat pitas
- with raw veggies
- I recently put it in my salad with some romaine lettuce, diced boiled egg, tomatoes, carrots, and cucumber, then I drizzled some of the Basil Parmesan Vinaigrette on top and it was DELICIOUS.
