I personally love it as the original and usually eat it with pita crisps or celery sticks and olives. Makes for the perfect snack or light meal.
Classic Hummus Dip
1 cup chick peas*, dried or 16 oz can organic no salt chick peas, rinced and drained
1/4 cup extra virgina olive oil
1 large lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove (1 tsp minced)
3 tablespoons Tahini (sesame paste)
3/4 tsp salt or to taste
Freshly ground pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree until very creamy. If the mixture is too thick, you may add a splash of water.
* For the dried chick peas, soak overnight. Drain water and boil covered over medium for approximately 30 minutes or until peas are soft and cooked. Let cool before blending with other ingredients.
