Yummus Hummus!

One of my favorite dips in hummus.  This Mediterranean delight is not only delicious, but healthy too!  AND it's easy to make, as long as you have a food processor!!

Drain and rinse one can of chick peas.  Put in food processor.

This picture would have been cooler if I remembered to carefully pose all of the ingredients...  but add 1/4 cup tahini, 2-3 Tbs. lemon juice, 1 tsp. ground garlic, and 1/2 tsp. salt.  Tahini is sunflower seed paste.

Pulse in the food processor.  If mixture is too thick add 2-3 Tbs. of water.  Also do a taste test and see if you would prefer more lemon juice or salt. 

You can also add fun mix-ins like olives, sun-dried tomatoes, or paprika. Serve with veggies (carrots, celery, peppers, zucchini) or pita bread.


  1. Crazy! I was just going to ask you for this recipe because I had a mad craving! Way to read my mind.

  2. I've been on a hummus kick lately, and this looks so easy! I 'd love to try this. I found you through Kurtz Corner :) thanks for sharing!
