Hummus is a Middle Eastern food commonly used as a spread or dip. They are good choices to include in a meal plan for overall good health.
The calories in hummus are important, but because it is made from nutritious ingredients, it provides your body with healthy nutrients. When you eat hummus, you are giving your body healthy fiber, healthy fats, healthy carbohydrates, and very little sugar. In addition, the chickpeas used in the manufacture of hummus are an excellent source of vegan protein.
Homemade Hummus Recipe in 3 Easy Steps
Step 1: Gather your Ingredients
For this basic hummus recipe you will need: two cans of chickpeas, two garlic cloves, 1 teaspoon of natural sea salt, 5 teaspoons of tahini, 5 tablespoons of lemon juice, 7 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, and parsley or coriander leaves for garnish.
Step 2: Place all of the Ingredients in a Food Processor
To make hummus at home, simply place all of the ingredients, except for the olive oil, into a food processor. If you do not have a food processor, you can also use a good quality blender. Turn the food processor on low and slowly pour in the olive oil as the food processor begins to mix all of the ingredients together. If your hummus dip is too dry, add up to 7 tablespoons of fresh cold water to your dip, while you mix all of the ingredients together in your food processor.
Step 3: Plate your Hummus
When all of your ingredients are mixed together, and the texture of the dip is smooth and consistent, pour the hummus into a beautiful serving dish. Drizzle the top of your hummus with some olive oil. In order to creatively flavor your homemade hummus, you may want to add your own individual garnishes. Some wonderfully flavorful garnishes to add are chopped parsley, coriander, or even some chopped jalapeno pepper, in order to add an extra zip to your homemade hummus dip.Print
