Hummus is a great snack for everyone in the family, and it’s super easy to make at home. My friend Molly taught me a trick to make the best hummus: let it go in the food processor significantly longer than you think it should go. Turn it on and walk away. Read a book, meditate, drink a glass of wine…ok, it’s only 2 minutes in the food processor, but it feels like a really long time.
Makes 2 cups
1 15-ounce can garbonzo beans, drained, 1/4 cup of liquid reserved
1/3 cup (3 ounces) tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Place all ingredients in food processor and blend for 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl periodically. Serve with pita chips and cut veggies.
