Garlic Hummus

My best friend introduced me to hummus nearly 25 years ago when many of us were still saying, "hum... what?"  Yeah, she was ahead of her time here in the middle of the country and little did she (or I!) know what that little introduction would spark.  Fast forward to 2008 when I adopted my plant based diet and this was the first thing I created.  Think of it as a clean slate hummus, maybe it's hummus 101 - in any case, it's the most basic of basic hummi (read: plural) and the beauty of this is you add any ingredient at the very end to change it up. It's thick, its delicious and now it's yours.

Here are some ideas for you:

  • greens such as: spinach, kale, chard
  • fresh basil
  • dill
  • sun dried tomatoes
  • roasted red peppers
  • kalamata olives
  • nutritional yeast
  • Trader Joes 21 Salute Seasoning




Blend all ingredients in a blender until a smooth, thick consistency is reached. Top with paprika.Keeps well in an air tight glass container in the refrigerator for five days.

Serves 6
