Hummus among us.

As the season of parties is quickly approaching I thought it fitting to post an easy dip to make that is supper quick.

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
4 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 Tbsp dried rosemary or 1 Tbsp fresh
3/4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
olive oil
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Saute the garlic in a Tbsp of olive oil until it is just a little browned. Place the beans, garlic, rosemary, lemon, and cheese into the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times. Now turn on the food processor and drizzle in olive oil until it is smooth and creamy but certainly not soupy. It should be easy to hold on a chip or carrot. Should be very thick. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Refrigerate until serving. I like it with pita chips, tortilla chips, carrots, or red peppers. Easy. Easy.

  1. I have also made hummus with parsley OR cilantro substituted for the rosemary. Also, well-minced sun-dried tomatoes can add a nice flavor, too. I've never had to bring any hummus home when making it for potlucks :o) - Amanda
