hummus-ckeasy. delicious. healthy. happy.

someone recently reminded me how much ground up garbanzo beans are delicious. especially when doused in garlic. honestly, i don’t have a foodsabra processor- so for under $4 at [[devil market capitalism place-that-shall-not-be-named]] i buy Sabra, which is without a doubt the best hummus ever, and possibly better than homemade. [{roasted garlic. do it.}] & eat with quarters of those little flour fajita tortillas, which you can get 20 for a dollar. [[ much better & cost efficient than pita ]]

however, if you need a quick, impressive and delicious snack or appetizer and have a few bucks to spend or want to make huge quantities for cheap– here’s my favorite recipe:

  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons fresh parsley or cilantro
  • 2-3 tsp cayenne powder

Throw it all in a food processor, adding more of the salt, lemon, or cayenne to taste. Should be an almost creamy almost paste texture. Yum. Serve with tortillas, cherry tomatoes (!!!), celery sticks, raw red bell pepper slices, or baked pita chips.

Baked pita chips:

Buy store-made pita, open and layout flat on cookie sheets, sprinkle with olive oil and salt and bake for 5 minutes at 375, watching closely, turning once. hummus-ck
