Hummus Recipe, Quick and Easy

This is a quick and very easy recipe. It's best to make this recipe about 2 -3 hours prior to serving, to let the flavors meld together. Best if served chilled, with vegetables or crackers.

Hummus is one the oldest foods in the world. It is said to have been documented over 6000 years ago. You can find hummus in health food stores across the USA. This type of food is fun to make because it is simple and quick. Hummus nowadays is more of a dip than a main course, but there are areas in the world that it is the main course of a meal. The main ingredient in hummus is the chickpea.

Hummus is high in vitamin C as well as Iron. It is also a good source of protein as well as fibre. This is the type of food that vegetarians has as one of their staples as they don't get protien from meat. The flavor of the chickpea is nutty and is good on salads.

For this recipe, we'll consider it a dip rather than the main course. Its recipes like this one is when it would be a good idea to have a food processor. Its not neccessary mind you, but its nice. You can also use a blender either way will work just fine. The ingredients for hummus dip as follows:

1 can of Chick Peas(Garbanzos - spanish) 16 oz.

1/2 small white onion(bermuda is also good)

1 clove of garlic

3 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

Drain liquid from can of chick peas, pour peas in your blender. Mash the garlic and insert in blender, the olive oil and salt and pepper. If you have the instant blend button use that and blend the ingredients to a puree texture, add the diced onion and do a quick blend. I prefer the onion kinda chunky. You should put in a tupperware type dish, cover and let the ingredients meld together getting cold. This allows the hummus to be more flavorful.

Open dish and enjoy on your favorite cracker with cheese slices, vegetables or bread. The best thing about this recipe is you can put anything that you want in with the main ingredients. That way the end result can taste any way you desire, put walnuts or even fruit. You are the Chef.
