August was a really busy month for me and I didn’t get my goal accomplished. So I am doing two goals this month. I wanted to learn to make hummus. I found a bunch of recipes and the pesto hummus looked the best to me. I have pesto in the freezer already and do this was an easy one for me.
I have been eating garbanzo beans (chickpeas) since I was a kid. But hummus wasn’t something I had ever tried until a couple years ago. I’m not sure if it just became popular or if I had been hiding under a rock. Either way, I love it. I have found it to be a bit expensive to buy. But a can of garbanzo beans is pretty cheap. And since I am already making my own pesto and I buy parmesan when it’s on super sale, I can make it myself pretty inexpensively.
This time of year, we have lots of veggies either grown in our garden or given to us. So we have plenty of things to dip in hummus. I also like to dip pita chips in it.
- 1 can garbanzo beans, chickpeas
- 1/4 cup pesto
- 1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp tahini
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup warm water
- salt to taste
- In a food processor add all the ingredients. Processor ingredients until well blended and garbanzo beans aren't completely mashed.
- Remove and refrigerated for at least an hour.
- Serve with raw veggies, pita chips, crackers or anything you think sound good.
