I've been keeping myself busy making bags and even getting a little bit of knitting. My girasole is coming along slowly - up to 640 stitches around so each row takes a bit of time.
I made hummus today as we're having a "greek" geek night tonight and I thought I would post my mom's "secret" hummus recipe for everyone. This is an easy recipe and makes really good hummus.
Here's what you need:
2 cans Garbanzo beans
1 teaspoon salt (I use kosher salt)
2 cloves of garlic (I cheat and use the prepared diced garlic)
1/2 cup tahini
1/3 to 1/2 cup lemon juice
olive oil & chopped parsley for garnish
Drain 1 can garbanzo beans and reserve the liquid. Pour the other can including juice into your food processor. Add salt, garlic and tahini into the food processor and turn on. Add the lemon juice to help with the blending. Process until smooth. Taste! Add more lemon juice if needed or the extra garbazo juice if it's too thick.
That's it! So easy and good!
Substitutions - you can sub peanut butter if you can't find tahini. Also while processing, you can add more garlic if you like or black olives or roasted red peppers to make a different tasting hummus.
Use pita chips, carrot sticks, celery sticks or just use a spoon to eat!
