The Perfect Hummus

My obsession with hummus began when I was working with Freedom for the Heart Ministries.  My boss made some excellent hummus and subsequently taught me how to make it.  (I blame my addiction to Diet Coke on her too.)

Hummus is always a great choice for a party or even just for dinner because it's a base.  After you make the basic recipe almost anything can be added to it to enhance the taste.

So here's what you need for a traditional hummus dip.
Start with 2 cans of chickpeas, 2 tablespoons of tahini, 2 cloves of garlic (I like garlic so I used 3), 2 teaspoons of salt, and pepper to taste.  Start with 1 cup of olive oil, but you might need more.  Try to use as little as necessary because that's where the bulk of the calories come in.  The oil helps with consistency.

In a food professor combine all the dry ingredients.  Slowly start adding in the olive oil, but watch the consistency.  You want the ingredients to stick together and blend.

Serve with colorful veggies, pita, or pita delicious.
