oh, hummus

Nowadays everyone is making hummus… any kind – white bean, kidney bean, roasted beet,…. you name it! However, i have to say, as creative as that is, when i often times taste the traditional hummus some serve, it doesn’t even come close to being delicious and flavorful as it is meant to be.

I have my own version, of course with the help of Nani and my mother. But its still very traditional. Here’s the recipe so you can try it and tell me what you think!

. 1 can garbanzo beans
. 1/4 cup tahini
. 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
. 3 tablespoons EVOO
. 1 lemon, juiced
. 1 tablespoon cumin
. 1 teaspoon salt
. 1 teaspoon white pepper
. dried oregano for garnish
. red pepper for garnish
. 1 fresh mint leaf for garnish

1. Drain the can of garbanzo beans and rinse with water.
2. In either a nutribullet or a blender, add all your ingredients and blend. Add more EVOO if it doesn’t blend well.
3. Finish it off on either a plate or a cute bowl, drizzled with EVOO, dried oregano, red pepper, and a fresh mint leaf.

Try it out and let me know how you like it! Anush!
