Meatless Monday! Easy Hummus Recipe

img_5653Hummus has always been one of my favorite side dishes. This recipe is pretty easy to prepare and delivers big on flavor. Enjoy!


2 cans of chickpeas, liquid reserved
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus oil for drizzling
4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 cup tahini with some of its oil
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons, more to taste
1 Tbs ground cumin, plus a sprinkling of paprika for garnish
Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Food processor


Add all ingredients except the parsley, olive oil, and paprika in a food processor and pulse into a smooth puree; add the chickpea liquid as needed to maintain consistency. Taste and adjust your seasonings, add to a large bowl then sprinkle with a little paprika, drizzle with olive oil, and garnish with parsley. Serve with pita bread, falafel, or dipping vegetables of your choice. Bon Appetit!
