Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus

By: Shannon Beeghley, LPN, NS, CHHC

1 pint jar home-canned garbanzo beans (or use 1 store bought 16oz can)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup tahini
1/2 teaspooon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 cup olive oil

Drain the beans; setting aside the juice for later (it is about 1/2 cup). Pull all other ingredients in a blender and process on HIGH. Slowly add in the preserved juice and scrape the sides to blend it all together. Blend until smooth or desired consistency. Refrigerate. Eat with salty chips, as a dip with cut up vegetables, on pita bread (Israeli style!) or as a mayonnaise in chicken salad etc. Many different uses!!
Refrigerate any leftovers.

Yield: about 3 cups

Note: Tahini is ground sesame seeds. It can be found at Kroger in the organic section.
