Have you ever wanted to make your own hummus and did not know just how simple it is to make? Once you learn the recipe you will be hooked and adding in all of your own personal flavors. Here is a simple basic Hummus recipe for you all to try out.

Hummus (As used in Bistro On Main’s Marais Wrap, shown in photo)

2 16oz cans chickpeas/garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (the good stuff)
1/4 cup Tahini (ground sesame paste)
salt & white pepper to taste
1-4 cloves of garlic minced (depending on your taste and love of garlic)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 cup water as needed

Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until super smooth,
adding water slowly to get the consistency you desire.

As always, happy cooking!
