It's Wednesday and I'm finally getting caught up. So much so that I was able to squeeze in a two hour hike this morning in lieu of a gym workout. The sun was out, the air was brisk. Perfect morning. When I got home all I wanted to eat was a big bowl of hummus. Super easy to throw together on a whim.
Lemony Hummus (*with changes)
Source: Southern Living, Quick and Easy Recipes
Prep: 10 minutes; Chill: 3 hours
Into a food processor add:
3 green onions, sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed/pressed
2 (15 oz.) cans garbanzo beans, drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Dash of hot sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
Process until smooth, stopping once to scrape down the sides.
(*Mostly I make this for myself so I halve the recipe by using just one can of beans and just wing the measurements for the rest of the ingredients. I don't usually have fresh green onions or parsley on hand so I just leave them out. I usually add additional lemon juice as well as increase the hot sauce to a couple of dashes. Just adjust the amounts slowly to your own taste.)
