Here is what you will need:
Classic Hummus Recipe
- 1 1 lb & 15 oz can of chickpeas
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (plus more for the top)
- 2 tbsp tahini
- lime or lemon juice
- salt to taste
- cayenne pepper to taste and/or for topping
Blend the chickpeas by themselves first, then blend them with water. Mince a clove of garlic and add in to the chickpeas. Add the lime juice, a really easy way to juice them (as shown above) is by using tongs. It seriously makes juicing limes a thousand times easier. Add in the tahini, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and cayenne pepper and blend. Then pour into a container or bowl and drizzle on some extra oil and pepper, leave in the fridge to set.
