Super Hummus

Super Hummus


I like my hummus spicy and thick so here's how I do it.

Ingredients:

(organic is always best and strongly recommened)
1 can BPA free garbanzo beans(Garden of Eden brand), or better yet to soak your own dried beans
2 tbs or more EVOO. I normally use half evoo and half grape seed oil. Any oil you like will certainty work
1/2 clove garlic or more
1/8 cup or so of tahini. I learned that I don't like too much in mine. Most recipes call for 1/4 cup
1/4-1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
juice of 1 lemon
a few tbs of water 
spices of choice for me are:
tumeric
ancho chili or cayenne pepper
paprika
onion powder
I normally don't measure these. Most of them I would say would be about 1/2 tsp but I do go heavy on the pepper and tumeric. You will just have to keep tasting until it becomes to your liking. 

This is a pretty simple recipe. First you want to pulse the garlic in a food processor to make sure its nice and minced. Then add the chickpeas, tahini and lemon juice and pulse more until mixed. Next add all the spices and mix again. You will now need to do the taste test as well as see how you like the texture. You can add more spices and/or water if needed. I also add powdered garlic sometimes too.
