Super Easy, Super Tasty Hummus (Vegan)

So yesterday I decided to try something new and made hummus. WOW! Before I continue, the recipe I used is from Oh She Glows and you can find it here. From the way Oh She Glows describes how easy, fast, and delicious this hummus tasted, you might thing she is talking about cereal. Just toss everything together and voila, a delicious meal. Well, this recipe is just as easy as preparing a bowl of cereal. The recipe says that it only takes about 5 minutes to make including prep time. When I made it yesterday it took only 15 minutes including all the staging and picture taking I was doing.
Super Easy, Super Tasty Hummus (Vegan)
  • 2 cups (or one 540ml can) of Chick Peas/Garbanzo Beans
  • 1/3 cup of Tahini
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 table spoons of juice from the Chick Peas can
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7-8 table spoons of lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • Vegetable oil to drizzle (optional)
  • Paprika to sprinkle (optional)
This was the first time I had ever used tahini. You can find it by peanut butter at the grocery store.
Open the can of beans and drain. Save the extra juice for later. 
Measure out 2 cups of the beans. If you have a 540ml can, then you don't need to measure because the can has 2 cups of beans inside of it. 
Put the beans and 2 cloves of garlic into a food processor.
Measure 1/3 cup of tahini and add it to the food processor.
Add the lemon juice and extra juice from the can. Then start processing!
Before you finish processing, add in the salt, and then continue the processing until the hummus reaches a creamy consistency.
Put the hummus into a bowl, drizzle some oil on top and sprinkle some paprika to garnish (my paprika decided to pour rather than sprinkle).  
Then head outside to eat your hummus with some veggies and crackers while the weather is still nice. : )
This recipe is SO easy, SO fast, SO tasty. I highly suggest you give this a try, even if you don't like hummus. It's that good.
