Super Easy Hummus by Stephanie

As I explained in my original post on Dana's Shower my friend Stephenie brought this fabulous Hummus that she served with Pita Bread. It is so yummy and tasty and she was kind enough to share her husband Michael' s  recipe.

Super Easy and Yummy Hummus
2 16 oz cans of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
1/2 cup liquid from can of chickpeas
1/2 cup  lemon juice (depending on taste)
3 tablespoons tahini
2 - 3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons olive oil

Drain chickpeas and set aside liquid from can. Combine chickpeas (or garbanzo beans), lemon juice, tahini, garlic and salt in blender or food processor. While blending, drizzle in the olive oil then the cup of liquid from chickpeas.

Blend for 3-5 minutes on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.

As time goes on and you make more and more of it, you will find your groove and maybe a little more lemon juice, or more garlic or olive oil. Serve with pita Bread or Pita Chips or Gluten Free Crackers so you can serve a Gluten Free Appetizer.
