simple creamy hummus

Evidently the texture trick is to add more olive oil than the recipe indicates & use an immersion blender. I'm excited about the massive quantity now resting in our fridge.

  • 4 cups garbanzo beans, canned/drained or made from dried beans
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh is best)
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt if beans were dry/unsalted, otherwise 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp water, or enough for desired consistency
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon pepper (not pictured)
  • Place all in a mixing bowl & use an immersion blender until it resembles a rough puree.
  • Continue blending, adding extra oil slowly until your desired creaminess is achieved.
  • Adjust salt and water to taste, depending on what you intend to dip into the hummus.
