How to make Creamy and Smooth Homemade Hummus
..✫¸.•°*”˜˜”*°•.✫Thanks for sharing my posts! ★
Make your own - much better than store bought
Hummus is one of my favorite dipping snacks with hot pita or fresh vegetables (carrots, peppers, and radishes)
Hummus is an ancient food packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Iron, Fiber, and Amino Acids.
What is the secret? To make your hummus super creamy, you need to spend about 15-20 minutes of your day removing the shells of each individual chickpea. It’s very easy and takes about 5-6 seconds per chickpea. Simply pinch each pod and the shell will fall off.
Feeds 4-6 people
2 regular sized cans of chickpeas or 1 large can – RINSED
2 lemons – juiced
2 tablespoons tahini sauce
2 cloves of garlic
2 ice cubes
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
In a food processor or blender, add your tahini, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Blend until creamy – about 1 minute max.
Add your shelled chickpeas and ice cubes to the blender or food processor and blend for 3-5 minutes, or until the ice cubes are dissolved.
Check the mixture to see if it’s the consistency you want. If not, add a splash of cold water or a bit more olive oil and blend.
Place mixture in a bowl, top with olive oil and paprika, or whatever you like.
REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!
