Make Hummus: Fast and Super Easy!

 I was eating hummus way before it became cool.  Instead of peanut butter and jelly, I ate hummus.  It is healthy for you and a great way to eat beans if you are not a fan of them.  Hummus is very easy to make.  I love that you can put in the spices that you want, instead of being stuck with whatever someone else decides.  

The recipe is very easy:

1 can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

2 lemons

1/3 cup Tahini

salt and pepper to taste

That is the basic recipe.  I add garlic powder, parsley, Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning, etc.  It depends on what I feel like making that day.  I always sprinkle paprika on top.  When it is a special occasion, I will fry up some ground lamb and put it on top with olive oil of course.  Tahini is a bit pricey, but it last for several times.  I don't know that you save a lot of money by making it yourself, but it sure tastes better!
