The flavor of this hummus is similar in flavor to hummus made with canned garbanzo beans (or chickpeas), only fresher. If you don't have fresh garbanzo beans, you can sub with canned ones, just drain and rinse first.

SERVING SIZE

INGREDIENTS

1 pound fresh garbanzo beans (yields approximately 1 cup when shelled)

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed) paste

1/2 lemon, juiced

salt to taste

garnish (optional):

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

pinch sesame seeds

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Steam the shelled garbanzo beans for 20 minutes. Make sure to check the water level if you're using a smaller pan so the water doesn't run out (refill as needed). Remove garbanzo beans from steamer and allow to cool.

In a food processor or blender, pulse the cooked garbanzo beans a few times. Add the garlic, tahini paste, lemon juice and salt and blend. With the food processor or blender running, slowly pour in the water to your desired texture (add more water if you want your hummus a little more smooth).

Pour into your favorite dish and garnish with olive oil, paprika and sesame seeds if desired. Serve with crackers or vegetables for dipping; spread it onto a sandwich.
