Happy Friday friends! I’m in a super good mood because not only is my cold finally going away (I think) but my best friends are coming to VA to visit me today!
But lets back up. Earlier this week I ate my weight in tortilla chips and guacamole during the Super Bowl (oops), but I also filled up on some veggies & homemade hummus! This hummus was so thick and creamy, I had to share the recipe! (I literally was just throwing ingredients into the Vita, but it turned out awesome!)
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1 tsp salt
- ¼ tsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup sesame tahini
- Juice from 1 small lemon
- 2 tbsp of water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Red pepper, for garnish
- Blend everything together in a food processor or blender until smooth.
- You may need a bit of water to thin it out if you want it to be a little easier to spread.
- Store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
I threw all this (except for the red pepper) in the Vitamix and blended for about 30 seconds. You might need to add some more water to thin it out. I left my super thick. (Ok maybe it was a little TOO thick, because sometimes my sliced bell peppers cracked under the weight of this hummus. hehe.)
I paired this bad boy with some veggies, and those chips that pretend to be healthy but really aren’t. (You know who you are, Terra Chips. But I forgive you, because you’re delicious.) I served it in my adorable music dishes! (Thank you, Christine!!)
How do you like your hummus? Super thick? Spicy? Creamy? I like to thin this out with some water and use it as dressing. However, I might start mixing with some mustard, a la HEAB’s Hummy Mustard dressing!
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? I’m so excited to see my friends, I’ll definitely post some pictures of our adventures 😉
P.S. I updated the Recipes tab so check it out!
