Simple Hummus is an easy recipe that can be put together in about 5 minutes if you have the ingredients in your kitchen. All of these ingredients can be found in most major supermarkets. A few years ago Tahini was harder to find, but not any longer.
Hi Friends, today I am sharing a super easy recipe for homemade hummus. Honestly, it just takes five ingredients to make a nice batch of hummus, perfect for vegetable sticks, crackers or pita chips.
Ingredients for Hummus
Garbanzo Beans – This is hat makes hummus so easy to make. I usually buy generic brands and it comes out great.
Tahini – This paste is a butter-like spread made of sesame seeds. It adds that distinctive hummus flavor and this is a great brand to use.
Olive Oil – Always a must for anything Mediterranean
Lemon – for flavor
Garlic – you and use fresh or jarred
I like to add a little Tapatio hot sauce to spice it up, but it tastes good without it too. I like to serve it with pita chips or sliced carrots, peppers and celery.
It is a great appetizer to pull together when you have unexpected company or just need something quick. It is also one of the healthier appetizer recipes when served from fruit. It helps me stay away from some of the fried food that is not friendly to my figure.
You can also add a little chile or roasted red peppers to add a little flavor to the hummus.
