Homemade Hummus

IMG00169-20100806-1850



I spent the weekend in Hilton Head with my dear friend, Kendall, and her daughter, Logan. We had a wonderful time, and I highly recommend visiting if you haven't been. I made up a batch of homemade hummus for us to snack on. It's an easy dish, and even if you've never tried hummus or are unsure of it, I encourage you to try it. You might be pleasantly surprised; Kendall and Logan were!



Homemade Hummus

3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup water
6 Tablespoons tahini, stirred well
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 (14 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

P8010765

Combine lemon juice and water in a small bowl. Whisk together tahini and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in second small bowl. Process chickpeas, garlic, salt, cumin, and cayenne in food processor until almost fully ground, about 15 seconds. Scrape down bowl with rubber spatula. With machine running, add lemon juice-water mixture in steady stream through food tube. Scrape down bowl and continue to process for 1 minute. With machine running, add oil-tahini mixture in steady stream through the food tube. Continue to process until hummus is smooth and creamy, about 15 seconds.

Transfer to bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.

* I like to serve this hummus with Stacy's Parmesan Garlic and Herb Pita Chips. They're also great with Wheat Thins or carrot sticks.
