Hummus: Easy As 1, 2, 3

***I think I’ve finally fixed my blog. If you missed the other posts this week, check ‘em out!

Happy Friday! My days have passed soooooo slowly this week, but for some reason, the week itself has gone by quickly. Funny how that works, eh? Perhaps it’s because I’ve been munching on this beauty all week for lunch – well, except for Tuesday as you may have noticed from my WIAW post.

It’s just a hummus and veggie wrap, but I made it with homemade hummus. Never made your own? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. I’m not trying to be cheesy here; that’s actually a mnemonic device for the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 can of chickpeas (rinsed, drained)
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 3 TBS tahini
  • water (I used only 1/4 cup since I wanted it thick for my wrap, so add to your liking.)

Directions

  1. Whip it. Whip it good. In a food processor, of course.

Notes

  • This is a very basic recipe. It commands in a flavorful wrap or some spiced up mix-ins.
  • I like hummus with garlic, so I usually add a clove. Kevin brought some of this to work for snack, so I omitted the garlic. I’m sure coworkers won’t be happy if you add too much!
  • Many people like lemon juice, about half a freshly sqeezed lemon. Personally, I’m not a fan.
  • Make it your own! Try new ingredients. I’ve listed some hummus links below to inspire you.

And now I’m really looking forward to lunch! Have a great weekend.

    Wow it’s really that easy?! I had no idea!

  5. I LOVE homemade hummus! Do you ever remove all the skins from the chickpeas? It’s a pain in the butt but it makes it SO creamy. My favorite is in the summer when I do a roasted corn and chipotle hummus. Spicy and a little hint of smokey corn sweetness. :)

  6. We’re huge fans of homemade hummus, too. Love the idea of 1, 2, 3 hummus….. nice and easy to remember to get the proportions right. Have a great weekend!

    Your pictures look great! I love making special additions to hummus.

  8. I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that I’ve never made my own hummus before. I know it’s so ridiculously easy, but I Just found a few brands that I really love and I’m scared that I won’t be able to recreate that at home!

  9. I love homemade hummus. I first tried my hand at it last summer–it was so good! So I made a commitment to stop buying the store-bought hummus and make my own . . . and I’ve stuck to it!! I have yet to buy another container. :)

  10. HUMMUS IS YUMMUS! :) Love it!

  11. Homemade hummus is way better than store bought! Although I must admit I’m addicted to trader joe’s avocado hummus. I’m working on a homemade recreation!

  12. I have to go check out some of those hummus varieties. I LOVE making homemade hummus. The original is my favorite but I’m always looking to try something new.
