1 ½ cup cooked and drained chickpeas
¼ cup tahini
4 tbls lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ tsp salt
¼ cup olive oil
Dash of pepper
¼ cup liquid from cooking chickpeas or plain yogurt
- If you are trying to reduce calories you can substitute a great amount of olive oil and tahini with yogurt.
- You can use chickpeas from the can but I was actually surprised how much tastier is humus made with home cooked chickpeas. I usually make double amount of humus and freeze it in little jars. When I am cooking chickpeas, I am cooking the huge amount and than I freeze cooked and drained chickpeas. When you want to make humus, just leave it few hours at room temperature and make fresh humus.
