Barry and I eat lots of hummus! It's versatile, yummy and healthy. We make our own in just minutes. Plus this way we can make it without oil and also add variety depending on what we toss in there. Check out the easy recipe below.
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can cannellini beans, reserve aquafaba (the juice in the can)
2 tablespoons tahini
1 lemon juiced
1/2 tsp cumin
Put 1/4 to 1/2 (depending on how thick you like your hummus) of the aquafaba in a good blender. Toss everything else in there as well and blend until smooth. That is all there is to it!
You can also play around with this. We like to make variations by subbing black beans for the garbanzo beans or adding jarred roasted red pepper to make roasted red pepper hummus. You may also want to add garlic if you are into garlic. We have added kalamata olives in the past as well.
Pictured below is a batch of roasted red pepper hummus and traditional hummus, along with some of our other meal prep - - quinoa salad and no-beefaroni. We like to meal prep and will share more on that in future posts.
Hope you enjoy this recipe and thanks for visiting :)
