Hummus

For a long time, I wouldn't eat hummus.  The only hummus I ever had was store bought. . . tasteless, bland, definitely lacking pizzaz!

Enter my recipe for hummus!  I'm not sure where I found this one.  But it is a winner.

You can adjust the ingredient amounts to suit your own taste.  I usually start with dried garbanzo beans that I soak and then cook, but Progresso canned ones work just as well.

1 clove garlic, chopped
16 oz. garbanzo beans
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine beans and garlic in a food processor and process on high, stopping to scrap sides.  Mix in remaining ingredients and process on high.

Chill.

Serve with your favorite veggies or crackers.

Tahini is in the Asian foods aisle at the grocery store.
