Just finished licking the spatula from this fantasticly easy hummus. With hummus this fast there is really no reason to not make this healthy dip. This recipe is from Dr. Oz. If you do not DVR him, you really should start. Like tomorrow. He is all about nutrition for disease prevention. I want him as a BFF.
Super easy hummus
- 1 can garbanzo beans (keep the liquid! you will need it)
- 1/2 cup tahini *tahini: sesame seeds (in paste form) That’s it, a fancy name for sesame seeds! Look for it in the health food section of your grocer, right next to the peanut butter. Tahini rocks because it boasts a whopping 30% of your daily calcium requirements in just one serving. Buy it. Try it.
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- paprika to taste
Place all of your ingredients in a food processor (except for the liquid from the garbanzo beans). Process, and stop to scrape down periodically. Slowly add bean liquid until it reaches your desired consistency.
