I LOVE LOVE LOVE humus…it’s one of my top 5 favorite dips. It’s healthy and delicious, great with crackers, veggies, it’s just so versatile. With my new Ninja- I totally had the tools to make this amazing dip and I DID. It turned out good! It was VERY fluffy, so if you enjoy fluffy humus- this is your recipe. If you like more dense humus, you can just add in more chick peas and it will dense up to your liking. Here’s what you’ll need:
1.5 can of chick peas (leave about 1/3 cup of the water from these)
2 cloves of garlic
4 teaspoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon of pepper
1 tablespoon of paprika
1 tablespoon of parsley
Strain the cans of chick peas, saving the 1/3 cup of water.
Place these in your food processor. Peel the garlic and crush then place this in the food processor.
Chop until the chick peas are finely cup up- not smooth yet.
Add in the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, and parsley. Mix more. Taste and add more salt and pepper to your liking. Keep mixing until it’s the consistency you like.
Add in the lemon and mix more.
This recipe is versatile! You can add the other half of the can of chick peas to dense it up. Add in more lemon if you like that or more garlic. Spice it up with Tabasco! Go WILD. It was so ultra easy to make and I will absolutely be making this again- I’m so happy there are leftovers!
