Hummus is easy to make and very inexpensive., plus chickpeas are a great source of protein. I keep hummus on hand to eat as a snack with veggies or use it as a spread for sandwiches.
Cooking time 10 minutes
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp (15 ml) lemon juice
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
1 can chickpeas 398 ml or 14 fl oz
1/2 cup (125 ml) chickpea liquid
1 tbsp (15 ml) tahini
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cumin
olive oil (optional)
Combine the first seven ingredients in a blender and blend. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with paprika and drizzle with olive oil.
