Hummus

Advanced and Core Plan

Serves 4-6

This is a recipe that appeared in my Maximized Living Nutrition Plans book 10 years ago.  I realized it never made it to my blog and it is one of my favorites.

This is a delicious and full of flavor.  It is great served with grainless crackers, vegetables, on a salad, or in a breadless sandwich.

1 can chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste) (you can put more to taste)
Lemon juice (adjust amount to desired consistency and taste)
Sea salt to taste

Optional add ins:
Fresh parsley
Paprika
Cumin
Cayenne

*Kim’s favorite:  I personally love a lot of cumin and a dash of cayenne.   When ready to serve, I drizzle more olive oil, paprika and fresh parsley

Drain chickpeas reserving about 1/4 cup of the liquid.  Put chickpeas and reserved liquid in a food processor and process until smooth.  Add all other ingredients and adjust to suit taste and consistency.
