I made a small batch of hummus to go with dinner tonight, and I realized that some people might not know how incredibly easy it is to make. Many people probably don't know that hummus comes from chickpeas/garbanzo beans, either. In other words, it's good for you! (Depending on what you add to it.)
I don't have step-by-step pictures for this post because, well, I was hungry. And when I'm hungry, I ain't got time for that. Tonight, I made Ranch Hummus, which is the recipe below. However, hummus is extremely versatile which means you can season it however you like.
1 cup cooked chickpeas/garbanzo beans*
1/2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp. Fat Free Ranch Dressing
Put all ingredients into a food processor.
Process until smooth and creamy.
Eat until your heart is content.
*You can use canned chickpeas/garbanzo beans, but everything tastes better and is better for you when fresh!
How easy was that?! Regular hummus is just as easy. Replace the Ranch Dressing with 1/2 tbsp. more Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 clove of garlic and a dash of salt.
