Yes, you read correctly! This recipe includes five ingredients and tastes absolutely, positively delicious. Another bonus? It’s inexpensive! One 8 oz tub of Trader Joe’s Tahini Sauce can make up to 8 batches of hummus — unless you really love tahini, then it might only make 4 batches of hummus. Either way, TJ’s sells the tub at $2.99, Garbanzo beans at 89¢ and pre-made hummus for $2.99+… I’ll let you do the math to calculate your savings. ;)
Lemon garlic hummus
1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
2+ tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Tahini Sauce (or a similar product)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic (best if roasted or sauteed first, yumm yumm yumm)
*For more flavor, add spices like salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, onion powder, etc.
**For a creamier hummus dip, add Greek yogurt (1+ tbsp).
- Pour chickpeas and 1 tbsp of olive oil into a food processor. (Depending on the size of your food processor, you might have to blend 1/2 of the can with olive oil first, then add the rest of the can.)
- Once the chickpeas start to breakdown, add the garlic, tahini and lemon juice. Blend.
- In order to reach your desired consitancy, continue to blend and drizzle in additional olive oil.
