Promise me you'll never buy store bought hummus again. This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to construct, has no preservatives, very little fat, and tastes fresher and brighter than anything you can buy in a package. Oh - and also costs less than a quarter of what you'll pay for at the grocery store.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes.
1 14 oz can of chickpeas (garbanzo) beans
1/2 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
salt and pepper to taste
Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl and blend to desired consistency with an immersion blender.
I like to leave mine a little chunkier than smooth, so it sticks better to whatever you dip.
Serve with crunchy vegetables like carrots or celery or cauliflower, and/or flatbreads, pita triangles or bread.
I sometimes change up the spices, but the smokiness of the paprika is always the best thing for me!
Let me know what you think!
