Classic Hummus

This is a favorite appetizer for a reason: nutritious, and so easy to make, you can have it ready to serve in 10 minutes.  

The perfect companion for raw vegetables, or as a spread on a sandwich. 

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Drain chickpeas. Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor. 
  2. Blend for 2 minutes on low and 2-3 minutes on high, until thoroughly mixed and smooth. 
  3. Serve immediately with toasted pita bread, or cut up vegetables, as a spread on a sandwich, or even tossed with pasta and veggies (thin the hummus down with a bit of water and olive oil). Refrigerate and use within 3 days.

Replace 1 or more tablespoons of the Garlic Olive Oil with other fun flavors: Wild Dill, Gremolata, Chipotle, Harissa, Baklouti, Wild Rosemary, or Tuscan Herb Olive Oil.  By adding in another flavored oil, you will create a whole new appetizer.
