Photo source: TheNibble.comDid you know you can make hummus in 10 minutes? It's true. (Having a food processor will help.)
I am now feasting on garlicky, lemony hummus spread over toasted pita. This Tuesday is shaping up just fine.
I based this on Ina Garten's recipe, with some slight doctoring.
Original Recipe by Ina Garten
5 garlic cloves
3 cans chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved
1 teaspoons kosher salt
1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
2 tablespoons water or liquid from the chickpeas
8 dashes hot sauce
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Paprika for sprinkling on finished hummus
Turn on the food processor fitted with the steel blade and drop the garlic down the feed tube; process until it's minced. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process until the hummus is coarsely pureed. Taste, for seasoning, and serve chilled or at room temperature.
