Who wants some Hummus?

Extra Easy Hummus
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a blender or food processor combine garbanzo beans, garlic, cumin, salt and olive oil. Blend on low speed, gradually adding reserved bean liquid, until desired consistency is achieved.

This is good! I can see myself using this regularly as a snack- just out with the carrots and crackers. Garbanzo beans are high in protein and fiber, and by blending them up the weird texture of these beans goes away. I like the addition of cumin, which makes it a little mexican-ish. Quick and easy!
