Making the best hummus

Making great hummus is so simple and quick! I don't know why anyone would buy hummus if they have a food processor/Cuisinart!

The trick to good hummus is blend blend blend! Every ingredient should be blended for 20-30 seconds before adding the next.

tahini - 1/4 C
Juice of 1 large lemon or lime (always find the smoothest shiniest one available it's the freshest and filled with the most juice!)
1 clove of garlic
2 T good olive oil
1 15oz can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
1/2 t cumin
3 T water
salt to taste

Make sure you blend each component for 20-30 seconds before adding the next, you may have to add tahini and lemon juice before it starts mixing well. At the end make sure you taste your hummus and adjust the seasoning, you can add more garlic, salt, lemon juice, cumin according to your taste. Especially lemon juice, not all lemons are equal!!

Enjoy your hummus with a generous glug of high quality olive oil on top.
