Easy and Delicious 5-Minute Hummus

Did you guys know that May 21st is
National Hummus Day?

I know I haven’t gotten into it yet on this blog,
but before we moved to Europe,  our little family (at the time)
had the distinct pleasure of spending a few years living in the Middle East.

At first, (I’m going to be completely honest here…)
It wasn’t my favorite, but after a few months, I slowly found my groove,
made some new friends after leaving my family and everything back in America
and I began to fall in love with my new surroundings.

I fell in love with the people, the country, and the cuisine.
(Y’all seriously… the food!)

Hummus, was my snack of choice and although,
nothing can beat experiencing it in a Middle Eastern country, however
making this 5 minute version can definitely curb a craving.

I hope you enjoy snacking on it, as much as we do.

Foodie Family 5 Minute Hummus

Ingredients
1 can garbanzo beans, drained (liquid reserved)
2 Tbsp EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
1 lemon, juiced
4-5 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
(chives for garnish)

Directions
Place all ingredients in a bullet/food processor/Ninja and blend until desired consistency is reached.

*Cooks Note: I only use about 2 Tbsp of reserved liquid, but use your discretion. I use a Ninja with auto IQ and the setting of my choice is Ultra Blend.

I’m looking forward to sharing more of my Middle Eastern memories & recipes with you.

Until Next Yum,

  13. Hummus is a staple in our diet. Since I don’t eat meat, I use beans as a way to add in some more protein. This sounds like a perfect recipe to add to my arsenal so I don’t have to rely on the storebought.

    Easy recipe even though I’ve never had hummus. I’m not a fan of chickpeas but I recently saw a hummus recipe made out of something else. Now I need to go look for it or make yours and give it a try. Can’t want my kids to try new things if I don’t try them too.

  29. I’ve never had homemade hummus. Only from the store or a restaurant. I can only imagine how delicious this is with fresh pita bread.
