Hummus is one of those foods that you can smear all over vegetables to make them taste better. One problem that I have with hummus: it's expensive. At least in my budget. 3 bucks for a measly container that I can eat in one sitting!?! WUT. Well, today I decided to make my own. I can even list the ingredients on one hand. Not to float my boat or anything, but this came out delicious. It tasted super fresh compared to the over-citric-acidic hummus on the store shelves. Plus, this recipe doesn't have tahini in it. I am not a fan of the taste of tahini, even though I love toasted sesame seeds. Oh well, I can't control my taste buds. Anyways here's my version of hummus that was satisfying!
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp water
salt, pepper, chili powder (to taste)
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or a magic bullet (like I did) until smooth. Look how yummy this is! Plus, it's probably the same amount of hummus in a container. So much better than store-bought.
Just a P.S. I will be applying to grad school, taking the GRE's and wrapping up the end of this semester. Although I have a lot to be excited for, it's all very overwhelming! Pardon my lack of posts my lovely fans :)
