Homemade Hummus ready for some veggies. This recipe is super simple and perfect for entertaining or for a late night snack. Once you make this it will be hard to go back to store bought hummus. I hope you enjoy!

1 can 15 oz chickpeas, rinsed and drained

¼ cup lemon juice 

1-2 garlic cloves

Salt and pepper, to taste 

1/4 cup tahini

4 tablespoons ice water, more if needed 

½ teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Any of the following garnishes:  drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle desired nuts (pine nuts, almonds, walnuts whatever you desire), chopped fresh parsley

Preparation:

In a food processor or high-powered blender, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, s&p, cumin and tahini blend until the mixture is thick and creamy, stopping to scrape sides if necessary.

While running the food processor, drizzle in 4 tablespoons ice water. Blend until the mixture is ultra smooth, pale and creamy. (If the tahini sauce is  thinner add a tablespoon less of water)

Scrape the hummus into a serving bowl or platter, and top with evoo, parsley and nuts. Serve with pita chips and veggies .
