Homemade Hummus Recipe by Broke and Cooking - www.brokeandcooking.com

Ok, so I'm never buying store-bought hummus again! I've always heard about how easy it is to make your own hummus at home, but haven't ever given it a try. I recently got a blender during a pretty epic White Elephant, and have been so excited to blend everything. This recipe for hummus is super simple - bright and lemony, and ready to enjoy with carrots, pita, whatever you like. Watch the recipe video below and get blending :) 

Ingredients You Need:

  • 3 cups drained chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp water (or more if needed)
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 tsp salt (or more to taste)
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 4-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (as needed)
  • optional: 4 tbsp hemp seeds - ground (packed with nutrition, including amino acids and high-quality protein)
  • paprika, red pepper, or chopped parsley for garnish

Method:

  • If you're adding in the optional hemp seeds for a boost of nutrition, pulse 4 tbsp hemp seeds in a spice grinder or food processor. 
  • To make the hummus, combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until thoroughly mixed and smooth. I like to start with about 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, and add more as needed.
  • If your hummus is a bit thick, add a bit more water or lemon juice. Check for taste and adjust accordingly. 
  • Garnish the hummus with some paprika and chopped fresh parsley, and get dipping!
