Hummus - 4

I’ve never actually had hummus before, but I’ve been really wanting to try it for a while. I figured it couldn’t be all that hard to make, and it isn’t! In fact, you only need a few ingredients.

Servings: 2

Hummus - 1

First, pour the sesame seeds into your food processor and grind them up as much as possible.

Hummus - 2

Add in some of the olive or vegetable oil a little at a time until you achieve the consistency of a paste, called tahini.

Then, add in the chick peas, and grind again.

Hummus - 3

Add more oil until you achieve the consistency of a thick spread:

Hummus - 4

You can also add in any flavoring you like, such as garlic or onion.  Serve with pita chips, or actual pita bread.  Yum – and full of protein and fiber!

  3. Haha, I don’t know why the heart didn’t show up. Weird!

    What do you usually eat with your hummus? I’m trying to find creative ways to use it. 🙂

  4. Looks delicious – I love making hummus 🙂 If you like roasted red pepper, try mixing in about 1/4 cup or so of roasted red pepper. It’s really yummy made in pita pockets with some fresh veggies and a little bit of fresh parm cheese 🙂

  7. This looks like an easy, delicious version. I love to add a little tahini to mine for an extra layer of flavor.
