Linda's Hummus

Linda prepared this dip for this year’s annual Poor Seminarian’s Cook-off. Hummus is packed with protein and healthy fats. It’s also really easy to make at home and to create your own unique flavor additions. And if you eat hummus a lot, making it at home definitely saves some serious cash. You can easily whip up a batch in 10 minutes.

Ingredients: 

Original recipe:
-4 T. tahini
-2 T. lemon juice
-2 T. olive oil
-1 (150z) can chick peas (rinsed & drained)
-1/2 t. salt
-3 T. water
-1 garlic clove (if you like extra garlic, roast it first so that you don’t get that nasty garlic mouth!)

Variation 1:
-Sriracha sauce
-cumin
-salt & pepper

Instructions: 

Basic recipe:
Easy. Toss all ingredients into the food processor and process until you reach your desired consistency. Add more oil/water to make it smoother/thinner.

Variation 1:
Simply add each of these ingredients to the food processor, to taste.

Variation 2:
Roast tomatoes coated with oil, salt & pepper in a 400 degree oven 20 minutes or until blistered. Cool 10 minutes. Add to food processor with the other ingredients.

Voila! It’s that easy!
