I'll-Never-Buy-Grocery-Store-Hummus-Again Hummus

I have been searching for a good recipe for homemade hummus. Some of the stuff in the grocery store tastes just flat-out awful. Other kinds of hummus have tons of preservatives and additives. So, for the past few months I have been on the lookout for a great recipe. I found it!

I'll-Never-Buy-Grocery-Store-Hummus-Again Hummus

1 15 oz can of chickpeas, drained, reserving liquid
3-4 T tahini
3-4 T lemon juice
1 t salt
1 T olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves

Place all ingredients in the food processor. Blend until smooth. If too thick, add some of the chickpea "juice," 1-2 T at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Since tahini, lemon juice and garlic are strong flavors, work with them to see what your favorite combination is for your hummus.

We made this today and I swear I could eat the whole batch in one sitting...probably not a good idea though.

I have stumbled on this web site originally for recipe for keeping deer and bugs from plants. I was looking at your recipes and copied couple to my Pepper plate application. This way I can make recipe using my kindle. For shopping on my phone. And menu planning on my computer. I'm excited to try your Greek Seven Layer Dip and this yummy sounding Hummus. Thanks for caring for your family and friends for sharing such nice recipes. Diana
