Cooking from Scratch: Hummus

Another quick and easy recipe from Mary's Kitchen.  My husband has realized that he really likes hummus.  Buying hummus from the store can be very expensive and I'm always leery about what is actually in store-bought, prepared foods.


2 cups cooked garbanzo beans
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, halved
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pinch paprika
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley

Place the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.

Drizzle olive oil over the garbanzo bean mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and parsley. 

Want to spice up your Hummus?  
Try adding Pine Nuts, Sundried Tomatoes or Spinach!
