My love affair with the Vitamix continues...
EASY TO USE. It's almost toooooo easy, but I mean that in a great way. This time I made some homemade hummus.
-1 can chickpeas (low-sodium) WITH the liquid
-1/4 cup tahini, stirred (homemade or store bought)
-1/4 cup lemon juice (approx. 2 lemons)
-3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1/4 heaping tsp cumin
-1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
-1 tsp salt
Toppings for Serving:
Instructions: Set 2 Tbsp chickpeas off to the side for serving. Place the remaining chickpeas and liquid, along with all of the other ingredients (tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt) into your Vitamix or food processor. Turn Vitamix on regular setting starting at setting 1 and slowly moving up to 10. Smooth until well blended; if necessary add in a little more liquid for consistency. Pour into a serving bowl and place the chickpeas you set aside in the center. Sprinkle with Paprika and parsley. Serve with veggies or pita chips or whatever the heck you want!
