The Best and Easiest Hummus Recipe

I love hummus and always wanted to make it myself, my friend Melissa gave me this easy and delicious recipe that her brother in law makes.  Thank you so much, I will probably never buy it again!!!  It is very easy and you can easily add different things to it to make it different.  I am going to try it with roasted garlic next time, you can also make it spicy by adding red pepper flakes, and mix in a little olive tapenade and you have olive hummus :)


15 oz can of chickpeas (they come anywhere from 15oz to 16 oz, use either)
1/4 Cup of the liquid from the can of chickpeas
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 Tbsp tahini
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Olive oil
paprika for garnish

Combine all ingredients except liquid from can in food processor and blend.  Add liquid from chickpeas and blend 3 minutes until very smooth.  Serve with a sprinkling of paprika and a drizzle of olive oil.  Enjoy!
