mmmmm! Homemade hummus! I’ve made homemade hummus before, but have always used canned chickpeas. This time I spent the extra time to soak dried chickpeas, then cook them. I must say, it made a huge difference.

2 c. dried chickpeas, soaked, cooked, then chilled
1T. olive oil
2T. lemon juice

1T. Tahini

2 cloves garlic
1/8 T. cayenne pepper
1 t. salt
black pepper to taste
water to reach desired consistency, I used 2 T.

Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until creamy. Serve with extra olive oil drizzled on top. Serve with veggies and pita chips.
