If you're making a veggie tray for the holidays this season, you HAVE to have hummus with it! Such a delicious AND nutritious alternative to many dips - like ranch. And it's actually super easy to make homemade if you really want to WOW your family! 😉 This is just a recipe for plain hummus, but remember you can add extra garlic or bell peppers or something else to make it your favorite flavor! Anything to spice up those veggies and make them enjoyable for everyone is a win! 🙌
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), reserve liquid
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
¼ cup tahini (sesame butter)
Sea salt (or Himalayan salt) (to taste; optional)
Ground paprika (for garnish; optional)
Place chickpeas, lemon juice, oil, and garlic in food processor or blender and pulse until chickpeas are mashed.
Add tahini; pulse for 1 minute. If hummus is too thick, add some of the reserved chickpea liquid. Add salt, if desired.
Garnish with paprika, if desired.
