Summer time reminds me of hummus. It is a food that can be made at any time during the year but for some reason I start to crave the creamy, fresh flavor of hummus when it starts to get warm. I don't buy hummus at the grocery store because I'm not a fan of the flavor of most grocery store hummus. By making it at home I can add any types of spices that I want!
Makes 2 cups
1 can chickpeas (15 oz), drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup EVOO
1/4 cup water
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Any other spices you want to add!
Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth. If you have time let it sit for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to meld together. It will last up to 2 days in the fridge. Serve and enjoy!
