When you go over to some people's houses, you know how you get specific insight into there lives via the smells you breathe in? Like, some friends' houses smell like laundry soap, or pine sol. Others smell like All Dogs Go to Heaven part 2.
We fall into this category of recognizable smells. Our house? Smells like garlic.
Almost everything we use has at least 4 cloves in it. Hhhhhhello, neighbor.
Anyway, the purpose of this post is to give you further insight into how we allow the tangy smell of garlic to saturate our lives. Hummus.
If you're not eating hummus, you're wrong.
Can I get an Amen?
3 Cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 cloves garlic, peeled (feel free to add more, i'm just keeping it sane for the hummus virgins)
Juice of 3 lemons
4 Tbsp Tahini (this is sesame paste....suuuuunny daze, chasing the clouds.....no? Ok)
3 Tbsp olive oil
7-8 Tbsp water
salt to taste
1. Add all ingredients to a food processor. Blend. Eat.
Now, if you want to level up your hummus, choose one of the following add ons.
1. As much Sriracha sauce as your stomach ulcer can handle.
2. Plain, canned pumpkin. Toss in a can of this stuff and enjoy extra dreamy creaminess. Add a tsp of cumin for extra flavor.
3. Roast a few red peppers and blend those into the mix.
Bottom line? Don't spend money at the grocery store that is this EASY to make. Plus, it tastes a lot better when you make it yourself, and you're allowed creative and sodium scale freedom. Go on and impress your friends.
