Best Hummus Recipe Without Tahini

* Hummus is traditionally made with Tahini, but is hard to come by in my area. This was just as good*

  • 1 (15 oz) can of chickpeas, garbanzo beans
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • Fresh parsley for garnish
Directions for Preparation
For this hummus recipe without tahini, prepare all the ingredients that are listed above. If possible, use organic garbanzo beans and lemon juice. Drain the beans and retain the reserve for later use. Add the ingredients - chickpeas, garlic, cumin, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and sea salt in a food processor. Blend them for 4-5 minutes or until you get a thick and creamy concoction, with a smooth consistency. While serving, drizzle olive oil over the dip. Garnish with parsley and serve with pita bread or fresh veggies.
