1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp. tahini
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp. salt (I used a little less)
pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 c. water (more or less depending on texture you want)
1 Tbsp. olive oil (more or less depending on texture you want)
1/4 c. cilantro (or more depending on preference) + a few extra for garnish
In your food processor, add the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cayenne. Turn on and pulse until mixture is fairly smooth.
Start processor running steady and slowly pour in the water, stopping to test the texture, then adding more water if you'd like.
Again, with motor running, slowly pour in the olive oil, adding more if you'd like.
Stop processor, taste and adjust seasonings, pulse and repeat taste testing until you have it the way you like it.
Add cilantro and pulse a few times.
Spoon out into a bowl and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and cilantro if desired. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate.
Serve as a dip, spread or however you'd like!
A tasty twist on traditional hummus, easy to make, and tastes so much better homemade! Serve as a dip, spread in a sandwich or wrap, on pita pizzas or however you'd like!
