Using a small food processor, making homemade hummus is really quick and easy. And completely versatile.
If you haven’t figured out that I like making things that are easy and versatile, hey guess what.. I really love making and sharing things that are easy and versatile.
Actually.. It’s really that I value creating and sharing solid foundational things to grow upon. <– THIS CONCEPT IS EVERYTHING I DO IN MY LIFE.
Aaaaaanyway.. This spicy, garlic hummus is no exception!
This is a good basis for a quick, tasty dip that isn’t terrible for you. Please do mix up your ingredients for different flavors and share with me what you do and how it goes!
- 1 15.5oz can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
- 1 tbsp of the liquid from the can (If you forget to do this, you can use a tbsp of olive oil)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice (the plastic lemon kind is totally fine)
- 1 clove garlic, minced (I’m sure the pre-minced jar version works, too. Try starting with 1 tsp)
- 4 thin slices of fresh jalapeno depending on how spicy you want it (4 is like a 4/5 spicy)
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp salt
Making Your Spicy Garlic Hummus
- Put all ingredients into food processor
- Blend for 30 seconds
- Give it a quick mix with a spoon or fork, being very careful while poking around the food processor blades. Do NOT do the mixing while the food processor is on!!! Common sense, people!
- Continue blending at 30 second intervals until you’ve reached the desired consistency. I like mine a little smoother rather than course so I repeat these cycles for a good while.
Now, wasn’t that easy-chick-peasy?!
