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
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)
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,
