Whenever I hear the word “hummus,” I think of this.
“What gets out hummus? What gets out hummus?!”
I am a huge fan of hummus. I love all the varieties and I especially love to make it from scratch. I think a lot of people get intimidated by making hummus, but I’m telling you it’s not that difficult. As long as you have a blender, Magic Bullet or food processor, you’ll be fine!
First, you’ll gather up all your ingredients: garbanzo beans (AKA chickpeas), tahini, olive oil, avocados, lime, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, onion powder and cayenne pepper.
Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans.
Pour the garbanzo beans into your blender and pulse until coarsely chopped.
Add all the remaining ingredients except for the avocado.
Pulse some more until the mixture is well mixed.
Transfer the mixture to a medium-sized bowl.
Next, cut up the avocados.
Add to the mixture and mash lightly with a fork.
Serve with your favorite chips, crackers or veggies.
Adjust the cayenne pepper to taste. If you don’t like spicy things, use less. (Me? I like spice!) I think next time I might try adding a little more lime and try a diced garlic clove instead of the garlic powder.
