Ingredients

    2 cup drained Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) cooked from dry beans or canned
    2 cloves Garlic (finely minced)
    1 Lemon (large), fresh squeezed, juice of one whole lemon (2 Tbsp)
    1 tsp Sea Salt, Fine Salt (any other salt will do)
    1/3 cup Tahini
    1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (additional olive oil - optional)

Tips

Look no further! This is a great hummus dip for everyone and checks all the boxes. Vegetarian, Lactose free, Gluten free, sugar free. Make it your own.


Directions

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse until well combined but still coarse. Adjust seasonings if needed. Add more olive oil (1 Tbsp at a time) for smother consistency. I ended up using about 3 Tbsp of olive oil (good fats).
Transfer to serving bowl and serve with veggies and/ or fruit (I love it with sliced apples). Or cover up with plastic wrap, refrigerate and enjoy later.

Serving Size: Makes about 6 (1/3 cup) servings
