Hummus gets some kick with lemon and garlic! The sweet, pungent flavor of lemon combined with garlic makes for a hummus you won't be able to tear yourself away from! Pair it with pita and you have a quick and easy appetizer or snack.
- 1 15-ounce can chickpeas or garbanzo beans
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1½ teaspoons tahini
Drain chickpeas and set aside liquid from can. Combine remaining ingredients in blender or food processor. Add 1/4 cup of liquid from chickpeas. Blend for 3-5 minutes on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.
Place in serving bowl, and create a shallow well in the center of the hummus. Add a small amount (1-2 tablespoons) of olive oil in the well. Serve immediately with fresh, warm or toasted pita bread, or cover and refrigerate.
