My friend invited us over for Sunday football and was already planning on making all the classic football foods. After sitting on the couch debating on what I should bring, I decided on hummus. It is healthy, yummy and I can snack on it for the whole game without getting sick of it. :)
I took a number of different recipes from online and came up with this yummolicious hummus!! It is a prefect party item, appetizer or food to bring to a football viewing.
Here’s how the hummus comes out and it takes less than 15 minutes to make!
2-3 garlic cloves
2 cans chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved (save a couple of chickpeas for garnishing)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
2 lemons squeezed
2 tablespoons liquid from the chickpeas
Put all the ingredients in the food processor (except the olive oil). Start processing and slowly add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil at a time. Unfortunately when I made the hummus this afternoon I eye balled the olive oil until it looked/tasted right. If you’ve purchased hummus from the store or ordered it at dinner you will have no problem with assessing if you’ve added enough olive oil.
Once it is done place it in a bowl and refrigerate for 15 minutes or more. The hummus can be served chilled or at room temperature. It tastes great with pita bread, carrots, chips or really any vegetable.
Add a little paprika and the chickpeas you reserved as a garnish. You can also add a little extra olive oil on top if desired.
