If you haven’t made hummus before, you should give it a try. It’s super easy and tastes much fresher than store-bought. You will find with this recipe that the texture is thicker and heartier than the brands you will find at the market.
- 1 can chickpeas (or approx. 1.5 cups)
- 1 cup tahini
- 2 tbsp olive oil (+ more as needed)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic (more if desired)
- 1 tsp Cumin, ground
- 8 Coriander seeds, ground
- Pinch of sea salt
Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. Add more olive oil, as needed.
Tip: Buy dried chickpeas and cook them yourself instead of buying them in a can. Some cans may contain BPA. You will save money. Plus, I think they taste fresher. You can cook beans in a pressure cooker in about 30 minutes.
Bonus Tip: You can make this same recipe with almost any type of bean. Recently, we have used black beans and black-eyed peas.
