What you need:
2 garlic gloves
1 can of drained & rinsed chickpeas (no salt added)
30 g water
20 g freshly squeezed or bottled lemon juice
35 g extra virgin olive oil
raw or roasted pine nuts (optional for garnish)
sweet paprika or cumin (optional for garnish)
garlic infused olive oil (optional for garnish)
Try it yourself:
In my robot chef or a good blender, add 2 garlic gloves, 1 can of drained and rinsed garbanzo beans, water, lemon juice, toasted sesame seeds or tahini paste, & olive oil. Blend until desired consistency. Drizzle with garlic infused olive oil and sprinkle some pine nuts, cumin or sweet paprika. Serve with cauliflower pretzels, pita chips, lentil chips, or raw sliced veggies like carrots, cucumbers, or bell peppers. This recipes makes 3-4 servings, feel free to double it if you want more hummus! Store any leftover hummus in a glass container in the fridge.
Tip: always choose non-bpa cans with no salt added.
Tip: save the liquid from the chickpeas, this "aquafaba" can be used as an egg substitute!
