Simple Hummus

Simple Hummus

This recipe I needed to make for a potluck. I didn’t know what to put in it so I created this recipe out of my head like I do many times. It turned out great and everyone really enjoyed it. The secret in this one is fresh lime.

a can of chickpeas drained and rinsed well

3 -4 cloves of garlic chopped

3 sprigs of green onion chopped

a couple of spoons of extra virgin olive oil

juice from 2 fresh limes

salt and pepper to taste

Add chickpeas, oil, garlic and green onion to the blender. Add a bit of water to get the blender going. Mine sometimes gets stuck! But don’t add too much water because you run the risk of your hummus getting to runny. Blend until smooth. Add spices and lime juice and blend again. Empty hummus into a nice serving bowl. Serve with warm pita bread wedges or sliced raw assorted veggies.

Tip: you can add a bit more garlic, the feedback I received on this one is people tend to like it more garlicky.

Pucker up!
