Don't buy it...make it!

There are times when you need to buy things for the sake of convenience.  I get that.

But when you find a way to make something VERY easily that tastes SO delicious, buying premade doesn't have to happen again.

Once you make this hummus, you'll never buy the store brand crap stuff again.  And as usual, the more garlic, the better :)  Another recipe to thank my Mom for...trust me, you'll love this one!

By the way, you'll notice that there aren't measurements for some ingredients.  Just add a little at a time and taste as you go...use as much as you need to have it agree to your taste.


Hummus
2 cans chick peas
5 cloves garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
juice of one large lemon
extra virgin olive oil
tahini (can substitute with sesame oil)
salt and pepper to taste

Put everything except the oils in a food processor.  Start mixing, then begin pouring in the olive oil.  Pour in slowly until it reaches a creamy consistency.  

Add a few tablespoons of tahini.  Keep tasting until it's to your liking.  Add salt and pepper.  Keep tasting and adjust the lemon, oil, or whatever else is necessary.

Looks great. I agree with you if you can make it it is ALWAYS better than store bought!

In the picture, the hummus looks very dry. I like hummus to be creamy. Is this a creamy hummus?

It may look dry but it's not. I didn't put measurements in the recipe because as I said, you have to taste/adjust to your liking. So, for really creamy hummus, keep adding more oil, tahini and lemon juice until it reaches your desired consistency.
