Scrumptious Hummus

By popular demand (okay, just Melissa and Claire) here's my hummus recipe, which actually originated from some friends in our Fresno days. I love it because the recipe has no oil but still whips up light and fluffy.

1 can garbanzos
6 T tahini
salt to taste
2 cloves garlic
5 T lemon or lime juice
cayenne to taste
1/2 c water or more, depending on desired consistency

I start by putting the garlic, a few beans, 2 T of the tahini and a bit of water in the processor to get smooth. Then add the rest. That way, the garlic isn't too chunky. One time when I made this recipe, I accidentally doubled the garlic (how, you say? I don't know--I had two kids hanging on me, probably!) and it still tasted good. I just had a green aura for a few days.

I am loving Peptogirl's series of posts on getting your craft business jumpstarted. Check it out--she shares some wonderful resources.

happy thursday!
