Yummy Hummus

I hope you are having a rocking day. If not, watch this video and you will feel happier.

I am having a rocking day because exams are over and I have much less homework than I’ve had in the past three weeks! Hallelujah!

A great way to spend that free time is by cooking and baking. One of the things I’ve been cooking* is hummus! Hummus is a staple food in our house. We eat it all the time! It’s great for lunch with veggies in a veggie wrap, as well as for dipping veggies in for snack! It also takes 5 minutes or less to whip it up. Enjoy!

*Is making hummus considered cooking? Idk. Let me know what you think!

adapted from the cookbook Barefoot Contessa: How Easy Is That?

makes 2 cups

  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed but with a few teaspoons of the liquid reserved
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • a few dashes of Sriracha sauce

Drain the chickpeas but reserve a few teaspoons of the liquid and put both in a food processor. Add everything else and blend, baby, blend! If the hummus is too thick for your liking, add some more lemon juice. If it’s not spicy enough, add some more Sriracha sauce! A little drop of sauce goes a long way, though, so try not to add too much or you will have steam coming out of your ears (insert Scooby Doo video reference that makes me laugh every time I watch it)! You can enjoy this hummus with raw veggies, crackers, bread, or whatever else you fancy! The hummus tastes even better the next day!
