So if you know anything about me, then you probably know I like hummus. A lot. About a year ago I made a blog on Tumblr devoted to posting pictures only of hummus (you can check it out here!), and I was shocked how quickly it became popular. It was really nice knowing I'm not the only one with a love for hummus. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make my own very often, since my blender was rubbish and I didn't have a food processor. But now that I have a food processor, you can expect many hummus recipes in the future!
You should be able to throw all the ingredients in at once and have a perfectly good hummus, but I've learned to use a specific order that seems to make it the smoothest. First, blend the tahini and lemon juice; then add olive oil, water, garlic, and salt and blend; next, add and blend garbanzo beans; and finally, blend in spinach (or roasted red peppers or whatever extra flavor you choose).
- 1 (14.5 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/3 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 olive oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2 cups fresh spinach
In a food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate before serving.
Makes about 2 cups
