Mom’s Hummus

My mom passed this recipe over to me, and it is by far the best hummus I’ve ever had.

3/4 Cup Tahini

6 or 7 Big sized cloves of Garlic (chopped or minced)

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1 Can of Chickpeas

3 lemons juiced

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

1 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1.  Strain Chickpeas and save liquid

2.  Slowly combine solids and liquids in blender so not to fry it out (I’ve gone through a few blenders in my day making hummus!)  A Food Processor is best.

3.  Adding Chickpea water as needed for consistency

4.  Add any other spices to mix it up every time, even pesto!

5.  Scrape into a bowl and refrigerate

6.  You can even make your own crackers with a dehydrator and some tortillas or bread.  You can even make raw flax crackers in a dehydrator (I will be adding that recipe soon)
