Hummus Recipe de Gregorio

There are a large number of hummus recipes floating on the net, and when you find one you like, use it. Here is my general spin on it
  • 2 14oz cans chic peas A.K.A garbanzo beans
  • 1 12oz bottle of tahini 
  • 1/2 the liquid from 1 can of chic peas
  • 4 lemons juiced 
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt 
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cumin

Take everything throw it in your food processor, pulse it a couple times to get stuff mixed, and then purée until smooth.  If it's a bit dry add a splash more EVO or liquid from the chic peas.  Taste and adjust lemon juice, or garlic, or salt, or pepper etc. to your taste.  I like mine garlicky and lemony, but do as you see fit. Server with  pita chips, toasted bread, tortilla chips, or pretty much anything you like to dip.  If you have the time and inclination you could pass it through a chinoise to get a really smooth purée, but a little fibre and texture didn't hurt anyone.

More Later....
