Currently eating this beauty. It is sooooooo delicious if I do say so my self!
Hummus is a wonderful dip that gives us so much energy (and sometimes gas hehe), and is so yummy! I love hummus due to the variations you can do with it. Hummus is most commonly known for being created with garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas. My favorite is the simple classic hummus takes five minutes! Today I added a bit of a twist and created and sundried tomato and garlic hummus. It’s so creamy and has a wonderful sophisticated taste that reminds me of Italy. Definitely from the wonderful sun dried tomatoes used in this dish.
Hummus is always in my fridge. Whether it’s store bought or homemade. It’s wonderful for superbowl parties, family or friends over, holiday, or just a quick snack. My favorite veggie to dip into hummus a yellow bell pepper. I cut them so it’s more like a shovel or scoop of hummus into my mouth! I also enjoy carrots, broccoli, celery, and crackers with my hummus. So many variations right!
Sundried Tomato and Garlic Hummus
1 cup of dried garbanzo beans soaked
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2-4 tablespoons of water
2 sun dried tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
¼ cup of onion
¼ cup of cherry tomatoes
2 tsp of garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Gather one cup of dried garbanzo beans (or 1 can) and soak for 12 hours or overnight. Once soaked, boil for 30 minutes. Rinse garbanzo beans and try to get as much loose “skin of the bean as you can. Place in blender.
On the oven; saute onion, cherry tomato’s, and garlic to your liking with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season. Once finished put in blender on top of garbanzo beans. Add another tablespoon of olive oil, water, lemon juice, and more seasoning. Blend. You may need to add more water to create a thinner base while blending.
Finished! With the result of homemade hummus that is beautiful and smooth right in your fridge! Below I created a small list of ideas for you to try in the future. Now that you know how to make hummus, the options are endless and fun!
