Homemade (Garlic) Hummus

Snacking! Do you like snacking throughout the day? Do you get hungry, but struggle with having snacks with you or not knowing what to eat?

Well one of my favorite snacks (usually mid afternoon) is hummus with veggies or pita! Now of course, you could just buy hummus in the store. But if you eat A LOT of hummus like me, you may realize it can get expensive. Tahini is fairly expensive, but it really will save you $$ in the long run.

Here is how to make original hummus with 4 ingredients!

First, get all your ingredients ready. You will need a can of drained chickpeas, chopped garlic, tahini paste, and olive oil.


Next, add all ingredients to a food processor or blender. I use my Ninja which I use for just about anything :)

First, add the chickpeas.


Then garlic…I used about 3-4 cloves, but can use as much as you want depending on how garlicky you want the hummus to be.


Then tahini…about 1 tablespoon.


Lastly, olive oil!!


Pulse then add more oil as needed.


You did it!!! It’s that easy!!!

Serve with your favorite raw veggies or pita!!!
