Recipe:Smooth, Silky and Simple Hummus

I love hummus.  It just hits the spot when you need a snack.  It is also great in wraps, in sandwiches and on bagels.  This is my hummus recipe with a secret ingredient: apple cider vinegar.  It gives the hummus that zing that you might feel is missing if you have tried to make hummus before.  This is a simple recipe - throw everything into the food processor, blend for a minute or two, and, voila, its ready to eat.

Add all ingredients to the food processor.  I use canned chickpeas because its easy.  But you could prepare some dried ones if you like.  Use high quality tahini.  It really makes a difference.

Puree for 1-2 minutes until the hummus has a smooth, creamy consistency, scraping down sides of processor if necessary.

Transfer to a bowl and serve! I put the remainder in a sealed container and it lasts for a week or so in the fridge.

  1. I LOVE hummus but hate the store bought stuff. Everytime I buy hummus from the supermarket, it tastes like crap and I just throw it out. Thanks for sharing this recipe - I should try it over the holidays.
