Hummus was one of those late finds for me. I never heard of it until about a year ago when I ordered a vegetarian wrap. One bite and I was hooked!
Now, I am in no way a hummus guru and this recipe does not use all the traditional hummus ingredients but for a quick homemade meal or party snack this works great!
The texture, the hint of sesame flavor and the bite of garlic are perfect and you can spice it up as much as you like. Even the husband liked it! I almost fell off my chair! He’s just not a hummus type of guy.
- 1 can of Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained and rinsed
- 1-3 cloves of Garlic (depending on taste- I used 2 and boy can you taste it!)
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- ¼ – ½ cup of vegetable broth or fat free chicken broth or even water
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp curry powder (more to taste-this just gives a nice hint)
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor with only ¼ cup of the broth. Blend until smooth adding more of the broth to help consistency if you need too. You may have to help it with a stir now and then you want it thick.
Serve with whole-wheat pita and veggie slices, use in wraps, smear on whole-wheat crackers. You can really do anything with it and it sure is great for a parties!
