homemade hummus

homemade hummus--Journey for JessiWho knew how easy hummus was to make?  So economical too!  If you are a common cook, it is very likely that you have all of the ingredients already stocked in the pantry and fridge, maybe you just have to pick up a can of chickpeas and tahini, but that it!  Here is my base hummus recipe, but feel free to add in some avocado or roasted red peppers to create a delish take on your hummus!  


♦ 1 can drained chickpeas/garbanzo beans (SAME thing…correct me if I am wrong)

♦ 2 tbsp tahini

♦ ½ tsp sea salt

♦ 2 tsp white sesame seeds

♦ 1 tsp sesame oil

♦ 1 ½ tsp olive oil

♦ lemon juice from ½ lemon

♦ splash of water (more or less depending on desired consistency)

homemade hummus--Journey for JessiJust place all ingredients into a food processor (or blender if you are in college and do not own a food processor).  Just blend together until the hummus comes out smooth.  I promise it will get there!

I enjoyed mine with sliced english cucumber and celery.  Now that I know how easy it is to make hummus, I will no longer buy it–and I can mix it up by adding roasted red peppers or olives or even avocado!  Yummy!

What’s your favorite kind of hummus?
