    My husband just discovered that hummus is so good. We are buying it at least once a week at the store. Was looking for a quick and easy recipe to make at home!

    Thanks :hippie:

    so easy to make and it tastes better than store bought.
    chicpeas (in can) take out the oil in the can they are in and set aside
    olive oil
    lemon
    salt pepper to taste

    grind up chickpeas in food processor
    add a little of their oil or use olive oil to make it pasty

    blend as smooth or not as you like
    add salt pepper to taste

    add fresh lemon to taste


    Enjoy with fresh vegetables, crackers. AND it's so healthy:woohoo:

    I make mine with chickpeas, olive oil, lemon, a garlic clove or 2 and a few tablespoons of tahini paste and blend in food processor. If you want to try a different flavor add some chipotle pepper or roasted red pepper to it.

    Thanks for this link! I think I'll be making some hummus pretty soon. I absolutely LOVE hummus... but haven't been brave enough to make it on my own. I love the pictures and easy instructions in the link. :)

    I make it a couple times a week in our Magic Bullet. One can of chickpeas, 1/4 cup tahini, a clove of garlic, splash of lemon juice, a little olive oil, and reserved water from chickpeas it it's too thick. A little salt, and a dash of cayene pepper. SO easy.

    Have you tried it with and without tahini? Can you tell a taste difference?

    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    hot sauce or cayenne pepper, to taste
    salt and pepper, to taste

    Directions:
