Homemade Hummus 

Homemade Hummus 

Hummus is so easy to make at home, and taste so much better then store bought. If you don’t have tahini leave it out, just add a bit more oil. You could also replace it with smooth peanut butter.

 

Homemade Hummus

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup fresh or bottled lemon juice

1/4 cup tahini or smooth peanut butter

1 small garlic clove, minced

2 tbls oil (I used rice bran)

1/2 tsp salt

Extra to taste, Mrs Rogers Chilli Lime Sea Salt (optional)

Sprinkle of smoked paprika, for serving

 

Add all ingredients into a food processor, and process until smooth and creamy.

Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process another 30 seconds or until well blended.

If hummus is to think add a bit more oil.

For a bit of zest and heat add some Mrs Rogers Chill and lime sea salt, or leave out.

Taste for salt and adjust as needed. Serve hummus with a sprinkle of smoked paprika.

Store hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate up to one week.

Serve with plain crackers and chopped up carrot sticks.

ENJOY!

This Banana Bread is so delicious and moist, I love how the coconut sugar caramelizes on top of the bananas while baking. Great for school lunches and toasts well too.
