Directions

  1. If you do not have any prepared hummus on hand, place cooked chickpeas (if canned, drain and rinse), in a food processor or blender with 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, tahini, garlic (1/8 teaspoon garlic powder can be used instead of 1 clove fresh), and black pepper (for roasted red pepper version, add 1/2 cup or half of a water-soaked red pepper and cumin). Process until very smooth (about 1-2 minutes). If more liquid is needed, add more lemon juice or water. Garlic, cumin, and black pepper can be adjusted for personal taste preferences.
