A quick and easy hummus recipe.
1 can of chickpeas (drained)
Juice of half a lemon
apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, peeled and pressed (optional)
I use a Cuisinart Smart Stick immersion blender for this recipe. It comes with a mixing cup that is the perfect size and seems to smooth the hummus better than a food processor. You can find one of these online or I got mine at Kohl’s. It is my favorite kitchen tool.
If you don’t have an immersion blender, use a food processor.
1) Place all the ingredients in the food processor or a bowl. I use about 2 Tablespoons of oil and 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp vinegar.
2) Mix until smooth, adding more oil as necessary to smooth the mixture out.
This creates a very tangy, simple hummus. The garlic is fairly strong. You can add many other ingredients to this recipe. Traditionally, tahini is added. This will give it less of a tangy flavor. You could also add roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes or a plethora of spices.
