Easy App

Hummus is a crowd-pleasing appetizer that goes well with a variety of "dippers."  Making your own is SO easy and much more cost effective than buying it in the store. 

Homemade Hummus
1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
2 TBS tahini (this is optional)
2 TBS minced garlic

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.  I usually drizzle some extra olive oil on top and sprinkle with paprika before serving.  If you want to play with flavors, try adding:  fresh herbs, olives, roasted red peppers, etc.

I do this all the time, too. So much cheaper than buying it. Don't you all call that "recessionista?"
