Recipe sharing - Homemade Hummus submitted by Lisadynae !!!

You are in for such a treat! Our friend Lisadynae has been sharing her recipes with us for a long time now, she went missing in action for a bit, but she is back and has kindly allowed me to post her recipe for homemade hummus! I am putting the pictures with recipe here, but to really see how talented and versatile she is you will definitely want to check out her site A Day In The Life .

Hungry Woman's Hummus


1 can garbanzo beans(chick peas) drained, reserve the water from the can
2 Tbsp. Tahini (can be found in most grocery stores)
2 garlic cloves
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
salt to taste

Take the garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic and lemon juice and throw them all in your food processor. Blend until you get a peanut butter like consistency. (if its too thick throw some of the water from the can, it works wonderfully).
Salt to taste. I wait until the end to salt it because usually I don't even need to salt it, the water from the can has salt in it.

To serve the hummus I put it on a plate and top it with some olive oil and paprika! Best served with warmed pita bread or pita chips, but also tasty with veggies and regular crackers!


Thank you so much lisa for sharing with us....and everyone be sure to check her site out, there are some changes and fun new plans happening over at A Day In The Life !
