Homemade Hummus

Who doesn't love hummus?

Tyler's mom has an amazing recipe that I must share. She made it for us last fall and I have been meaning to make it for almost a year now!

Today at the grocery store, hummus was $4.99.... so much more fun to make it homemade and pay probably a little less to make more than the store brand!


15 oz can chick peas

1/8 cup tahini

1/2 teaspoon cumin

2 tablespoon lemon juice

1 red pepper (from can)

3 gloves garlic (I used 1 tablespoon minced garlic)

1 tablespoon juice from chick peas

Salt and pepper to taste


I had to resort to using a rolling pin.


Epic fail. I need a food processor like ASAP. I have one on my registry if ya wanna check it out and give it to me as a wedding gift?


Tried to blend it together....


Progress.


VOILA! It's a little chunkier than most hummus, but Tyler will still eat it!


I finally got to use my apron my aunt gave me!


Yummy and healthy afternoon snack! Enjoy!

Ta ta,

I love hummus and I tried making it a few time. I could never use up all that Tahini, though. I think the red pepper in yours will make it even better. I never tried that. Hope you get your food processor.

How cool! I'm not really a huge hummus fan but Nick likes it. I think I will try to make this for him!

Red pepper hummus is my favorite. I've been meaning to look into making it myself. I'll have to try your recipe! Thanks!
