DIFFICULTY LEVEL: OY! / OY VEY!
Besides the fact that the title rhymes, yes-- this recipe IS no fuss.
Hummus is something I usually buy at the grocery store. No thought crosses my mind that I can make it myself.
Not only is this recipe fresh, but you can completely customize it to your tastes.
All you need is a food processor or Vitamix.
- 1 1/2 cans of chickpeas AKA Garbanzo beans (rinsed and strained but retain a little liquid)
- approx 1/3 cup of Olive oil -- or more, to taste. This is a time to step it up and buy the fancy kind.
- OK-MAK crackers or Pita Chips
- Minced or roasted Garlic (your call if you want any at all)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
OK. This is easy. Throw your bit of liquid from the beans and all of the 1 and a half cans into the blender. Add garlic if you would like.
Once you get the beans in the processor, add olive oil to thicken and smooth. Salt and pepper to taste.
Plate with some pita or crackers in a stainless steel dish (as pictured)
