Hummus is a great thing to have in you fridge for a snack or a lunch. Its also a good use of all of the chickpeas you made. Hummus is pretty easy to make, lasts in the fridge for a while, and tastes even better than store bought hummus.
The recipe makes about one 1/2 quart of hummus
1 half quart container of chickpeas
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 teaspoons of lemon juice lemon juice
3 cloves of garlic
1 tsp salt
ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a small oven-safe dish add 3 cloves of garlic with the skin on and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven until browned. Let cool and then remove skin.
In a blender add all of the ingredients and blend on high. If the hummus seems too thick add in extra olive oil.
Its great with home-made bread, home-made tortillas, and veggies. I have attached some easy tortilla and bread recipes below.
