Good morning all! I am still very excited about blogging and hope more of you will join me on my new journey. I have debated what to post, since I have a nice collection of recipes in my database. Today, I decided to share with you my popular Hummus recipe. It’s always a big hit at my gatherings and so easy to prepare.
Degree of difficulty: Easy
- 1 – 16 ounces can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 tsp. salt, optional
- black pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp. Tahini (sesame paste) optional but highly recommended for richness
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil plus more for drizzling
- 1 lemon
- Olives and flat leaf parsley for garnish, optional
Combined all the ingredients (except for the paprika and garnishes) in a food processor or blender until it reaches a creamy texture. Add more water if needed. Place in a medium size bowl, garnish with olives, parsley, sprinkle the paprika and drizzle some olive oil on top. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Voila, you got yourself a crowd pleaser! Serve with Pita bread.
