Hummus Obsessed

I have a serious hummus addiction...

It is just so darn YUMMY!






Here is my recipe for Garlic Hummus...

So you can become an addict too;)


  • 2-15 oz cans of organic garbanzo beans (I use Meijer Organics), drained with 3/4 cup of the juice reserved
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 Tbsps Tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • A sprinkle-1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on tastes...and tolerance;))
  • Salt to taste (hint: If you are using organic, low sodium beans, you may need more salt)
  • Paprika
  • Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Combine the first 7 ingredients, along with reserved juice, in a blender of food processor. Blend/process until smooth. Spoon into a container, sprinkle with paprika and drizzle with EVOO. Serve with fresh veggies or whole wheat pitas.



I hope you enjoy my latest food obsession:)
