Today I made homemade hummus as I have many times before (in my blender), but I’m wondering if there are other, better methods. Keep in mind I never have tahini paste at home, so my hummus never contains tahini.
I drain one can of chick peas and add it to the blender with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, water, minced garlic, onion flakes, and smoked paprika, and blend until smooth and creamy. I don’t measure exact amounts for anything. It’s good enough to not make me feel like I should be paying $4 for a little container of premade hummus, but I wouldn’t mind making it even better.
