Hummus Among Us
I am proud to say that I made hummus in the comfort of my own kitchen for the very first time. Erik clapped his palms over his ears to protect himself but didn't cry or even really seem to mind. At least much. His curiosity dominated any discomfort he was feeling. Now if I could get the kid to eat some of it with me...
1 (15.5-oz) can chickpeas
4 tsp tahini (or smooth natural peanut butter)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1 clove garlic
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp salt
Drain and rinse chickpeas, reserving 1/3 cup of the canned chickpea liquid; set aside.
In a food processor or blender, combine the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, lemon rind, garlic, cumin, and salt. With the processor running, gradually add the reserved chickpea liquid through the feed tube and process until smooth.
