Here is a basic hummus recipe that tastes just as good as store-bought hummus. Or better. I really liked it. And I've tried to make homemade hummus lots of times. The key ingredient is cumin!
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 t. Cumin powder
1/2 t. Salt
1-2 T olive oil
1 t. Lemon juice (or as desired)
Just process everything together into the yummy spread and eat with pita chips or crackers. Try our homemade artisan crackers.
Once you have this basic recipe down its easy to just add other things in, like cooked carrots or something else you may want to hide in a yummy dip.
Here's another version that mom likes...
2 cans garbanzo beans, one can drained.
Blend in blender with olive oil (maybe 2 T), I also have
avocado oil so put some of that in, with seasonings:
Garlic, onion, basil, salt, lemon pepper, etc.
You can add fresh herbs, or dry.
