Hummus

I love my homemade hummus.  I really dislike the taste of storebought and hummus is so quick and easy to make (unfortunately, quicker to eat!).  In true Nutritarian form, I add no oil to my hummus; instead, I add water. The result is a lighter, airier and tastier hummus—really! I do add some sea salt, though.  I love fresh herbs in hummus and always add in a few handfuls!

Ingredients:

3 cups cooked garbanzo beans (if using canned, this is 2 cans worth)

2.5 T lemon juice

1 T tahini

3 cloves garlic

water (start with 1/3 c and see how the consistency is)

optional: salt, paprika

1 cup loosely packed parsley or cilantro with soft stems

Method:

Add ingredients, except herbs, to food processor and process until smooth.  Add more water as necessary to achieve desired consistency. Add herbs and pulse until chopped.  Enjoy!
