Just For Debbie

Huumus Recipe:

I used this recipe with some alterations.

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced then mashed
  • 2 15 oz cans garbanzo beans (chick peas) drained and rinsed
  • 2/3 cup tahini (roasted, not raw)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pine nuts (toasted) and parsley( chopped for garnish)

I used about 2x the garlic that the recipe called for. I just peeled it and threw it into the food processor and let 'er rip. Fewer steps you know.

I didn't bother to rinse the garbanzo beans. Whatever. Also I saved the juice.

I bought a can of tahini. Who cares to make sure it is roasted. Really, people, I don't get that hung up. It was probably roasted.

I grabbed a small plastic lemon from the store and squeezed all the juice from it into the food processor.

Instead of water I just added the juice from the garbanzo beans and blended until I had the right consistency.

I totally skipped the garnish.

What ever. It was 10 and the kid just needed to be in bed- actually, he did most of the work. I just supervised and cleaned up. Normally, I would make him do that, but it was 10 and the kid just needed to be in bed.
