Do you have a favorite brand of hummus or do you enjoy it at one particular restaurant because they make it so perfectly? You don’t have to go out – make it yourself.
Once you have mastered hummus basics, check out the ideas below the recipe to take your hummus beyond the ordinary. Enjoy it often – it’s good for you. I love to dip carrots, radishes, and cucumbers in my hummus. Or try it on sandwiches as a replacement for mayo.
ps – It’s not cheating to use canned garbanzo beans. It’s just easy.

2 T extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 T tahini
