Hummus

I learned to eat this delicious recipe when I met a friend from Syria and her mother was an excellent cook who introduced me to many new meals. Now my family and I enjoy it as one of our favorite snacks. The great thing about Hummus is that we can have it with anything; crackers, veggies, pita bread, in a wrap or in a sandwich.


1 Can Chick Peas (drained, rinsed, and dried)
2 Cloves garlic
3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Lemon juice or Apple Cider Vinegar.
Sea Salt

Optional: Fresh parsley
Paprika
Cumin
Cayenne Pepper

Servings: 4-6
 
Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth: chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice or vinegar, olive oil and salt.  Add the optional ingredients according to your taste.
Enjoy it!
