Dip Wisely Homemade Hummus

Hummus appeared on the food scene a few decades back as hippie food. But these days this healthy dip has endeared itself to many more groups of people.


The store-bought stuff is OK but it can't touch the homemade hummus you can easily make in your food processor with only a few ingredients.

Packed with fiber, essential nutrients and has a low glycemic index!  It's an ideal dish!

Dip wisely my friends!!

Ingredients ​

  • 1 can (14–16 oz) garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas), drained, reserve 2 Tablespoons liquid.

  • Juice of half lemon

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1⁄2 tsp salt

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Combine the beans, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a food processor and puree.

  2. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil until the hummus has a thick, creamy consistency. If the mixture is still too thick, add one tablespoon at a time of reserved chick pea water to thin it out until desired consistency.

  3. Serve with the toasted pita wedges or raw vegetables.

  4. Optional: drizzle with more olive oil. Garnish with diced olives or avocado.

Keeps in the refrigerator for up to a week but this easy dip is so delicious it never lasts longer than a few hours at our house!
