Best…Hummus…Ever


IMG_4960

A great big MAHALO to my friend and neighbor, Billy Kamaka for this beautiful plate of hummus AND the recipe! This super easy recipe was handed down from Billy’s grandmother, who was of Lebanese descent. The hummus is also a fan favorite of the patrons at Juice Planet. It truly is the best hummus I’ve ever had. Thanks, Bill!

Best…Hummus…Ever

1 can S&W garbanzo beans
3 cloves garlic
juice of ½ ripe lemon
2 tablespoons Mid East tahini paste
½ tablespoon salt
Olive oil
paprika

Drain 1/3 liquid off garbanzo beans and set aside. In a food processor, blend together garbanzo beans with remaining liquid in can, garlic, lemon, tahini and salt until smooth. Use the remaining liquid to adjust hummus to desired thickness. Plate hummus and top off with paprika and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve on sandwiches, bagels, pita or as a dip for veggies.

Eat Well!
