If you’re wondering how hard it is to make homemade hummus, look no farther–it’s easy! It’s a piece of cake to throw together and make your very own homemade version of this Middle Eastern treat.
I’m posting my own personal version of how I make quick homemade hummus, but you can really alter it to suit your own taste buds. You can also add in lots of extras for your own personal flare: pine nuts, cilantro, and roasted red pepper are all delicious ingredients to try out in your hummus.
Most of these ingredients will likely be in your pantry already, but if you’ve never made hummus before, you’ll likely have to go out and get some tahini sauce (sesame seed paste). The good news is you can find it in most regular grocery stores in the International Section.
This is a perfect appetizer or spread with lots of different accompaniments: pita wedges, pretzels, baby carrots, and cucumbers are excellent scoopers for your very own homemade hummus. It’s also excellent in a wrap filled with veggies! Enjoy!
Quick Homemade Hummus
Easy and delicious homemade hummus that you can throw together in just a few mintues
Put all of the ingredients into a food processor. If you don't have or don't want to do the olive brine, just use salt to taste instead. The amount of lemon juice and tahini is also a bit of a personal preference, so alter accordingly!
Blend up in the food processor until very smooth and creamy. Taste and add in more flavorings if needed.
Once pureed and seasoned to your taste, serve up in a dish with anything you'd like to dip in it. I often use cucumbers or baby carrots as a nice healthy snack, though I think toasted pita triangles might be my favorite vehicle for it. Drizzle some extra olive oil on top for extra flavor and creaminess. Bon appetit!
