Organic Jalapeno Home-made Hummus (mild) - Recipe
After years of buying hummus at the store, I thought I'd see if I could make it cheaper and fresher. Well, it didn't turn out to be much cheaper, but it was super tasty and fun to make. Plus, when you make it yourself, it doesn't seem like such a limited resource, so now I can load up my chips as much I want, because I can just make a new batch.
This recipe makes about 20oz of Mild Organic Jalapeno Hummus for about $4 - $5
- 25oz can of organic chick peas - 3/8 cup of chick pea liquid from the can (after straining) - 5 tablespoons of lemon juice (2 lemons) - 2 1/4 tablespoons of tahini - 3 jalapenos (fresh or pickled) - 3/4 teaspoon of salt - 3 tablespoons of olive oil
Strain the can of chick peas (save 3/8 cup of chick pea liquid) and pour the strained chick peas into your blender. Add your chick pea liquid, lemon juice, tahini, salt, olive oil, and just 2 of your jalapenos. Blend for 2-3 minutes on low / medium, or until smooth. Then, add in the last jalapeno and blend for another 15 to 20 seconds, so your jalapeno pieces are still visible. Voila! Enjoy.
Now, try it on vegetables, chips, pita bread, or by the spoonful (its that good!)
