Forget that stuff you can buy in the store already made. Making your own hummus is so simple and so much better tasting! Although it’s a great protein source to eat with pita chips or fresh veggies, I’ve also been including it in my buddha bowls lately.  Have you tried them? They make the most perfect meals! Haven’t heard of them? Check out my Buddha Bowl Basics post.

Pull out your food processor or grab the one that I use if you don’t have one yet. Then gather your ingredients:

1 15.5 can Garbanzo Beans (aka Chick Peas)
1 Lemon, juiced
1 Garlic Clove
1/2 cup Tahini
1 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3 Tbs Olive Oil

Drain the garbanzo beans and put them into the food processor. Add the juice of 1 lemon, garlic clove, tahini, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pulse until thoroughly mixed. If the hummus is too thick, add a little water until you’re happy with the consistency.

When you’re ready to serve it add some drizzled olive oil, toasted pine nuts, a dusting of paprika and chopped parsley. Enjoy!
