Healthy Hummus Recipe

I have always been picky about what kind of Hummus I will eat. Most Greek restaurants serve good hummus but when it comes to store bought, I always go with Sabra Hummus  (spicy or roasted red pepper are my two favorites.) I recently tried out a new recipe for homemade hummus and it is probably some of the best I have ever had and super easy to make.


Hummus 2 cans chick peas (one drained and one with liquid)

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 cup lime juice (or lemon)

1 garlic clove peeled

1 teaspoon cumin


Simply put all ingredients in food processor as directed (except for salt) and mix together until the texture looks like the hummus you are accustomed to. Taste and add salt as needed.

hummus I like to top with a spicy olive oil. I love the Private Selection brand from Kroger but other people make different dipping oils that will work as well. They would also be easy to make by adding in your favorite spices to olive oil. One trick I have found works well is to add olive oil to my seasoned olive oil as it gets low. There is still plenty of spice in the bottle and it make it last much longer.
