We got rid of our Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, so I'm transcribing one of its recipes here so we can remember it. This makes pretty good hummus, great with pita bread or pita chips.
- 1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- In a blender or food processor, combine garbanzo beans, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and paprika. Cover and blend until smooth, scraping the sides as necessary.
- If desired, add one or more stir-ins of your choice (e.g. sliced green onions, roasted red peppers, etc.).
Makes about 1-3/4 cups.
