Easy hummus

We eat a lot of hummus. While store bought is continent, homemade hummus is super easy and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. This recipe does not require tahini, but you could use it in place of the water.

  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas (reserve the liquid for great aquafaba recipes)

  • 2 clove garlic

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

  • Olives for garnish

Add chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, water, and salt to a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. You can add more water a tablespoon at a time if you want a smoother consistency.

Transfer to a bowl and chill for a few hours. Sprinkle the paprika on top and add some olives for garnish. Serve with crackers and cut veggies.
