Last week, I shared my Food Prep Essentials. Check it out here. As part of my food prep essentials, I usually prep a dip or sauce to eat throughout the week. This hummus is on the top of the list.
Hummus is a dip made out of chickpeas or garbanzo beans. It is pureed until creamy with just a few additional ingredients. One of the main ingredients in hummus is tahini.
Tahini is sesame seed paste. Think peanut butter, but made out of sesame seeds instead of peanut butter. Tahini is now available in most grocery stores. You can find it in the peanut butter aisle or the international aisle.
This hummus is a recipe that you can make in under 10 minutes using minimal kitchen equipment - all you need is a blender (easy cleanup!) You may just find that making your own is more delicious and cheaper than the store bought kind.
5-INGREDIENT* EASY HOMEMADE HUMMUS
*Water, salt and pepper are not include in the ingredient count since they are common to have in most households.
**May need to add more water to get the consistency you like.
***1 whole garlic clove makes this quite garlicky. If you don't love garlic, cut back to 1/2 clove or omit.
