The Perfect Base Hummus
  • 2½ cups prepared garbanzo beans (soaked overnight or 24 hours and boiled in filtered water)
  • ⅓ cup tahini
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 1½ teaspoons garlic granules (or ½ clove fresh garlic - fresh garlic will make your hummus very spicy, so take caution when making for children)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup oil of choice (I use walnut oil)
  • Filtered water as needed
  1. Add beans & tahini to food processor, pulse a few times
  2. Add lemon juice, salt, garlic and pulse
  3. Drizzle in oil while blending
  4. At this point you will have a very thick hummus and it will need some water for a creamy consistency, so add in ¼ cup of filtered water (at a time) until it's creamy and smooth to your liking
