HUMMUS

Makes: 2 ½ cups

1 can (19oz/540 mL) chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or replace with cooked)
¼ cup tahini
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large clove garlic (or more)
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp salt

DIRECTIONS:

Add all ingredients and process in high speed blender or food processor until hummus is smooth and creamy.
For best flavour, refrigerate a few hours before serving.
Serve with cut up vegetables such as carrots, cucumbers, peppers, radishes, you name it!
I also love Mary’s crackers.
