{Basic Hummus}

Pita chips and hummus are one of my favorite snacks! Homemade hummus is so delicious you will never want to buy store bought again I promise. This stuff is so great in so many ways and with so many things. Dip for veggies, chips, you can put it in wraps, really anything. I love it! Oh and did I mention it’s super easy to make?

3-4 peeled garlic cloves, minced or pressed
2 (15.5oz) cans chickpeas
6 Tbs tahini
6 Tbs lemon juice
up to 3 Tbs of extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, curly or flat, rinsed and drained
1/2 to 1-1/2 tsp salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste

 Add garlic cloves, chickpeas, tahini, and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade. After putting the lid tightly in place, process until a thick, coarse paste is formed, about 1 to 2 minutes. Check the consistency of the hummus. If you’re happy with the texture of the hummus, add the salt, parsley, black pepper and cayenne pepper, and any optional add-ins, and pulse until evenly combined. If you would like it to be thinner and/or smoother, add the olive oil and process for an additional minute.
