Recipe for Hummus.

Hummus.. this is like having peanut butter in my family. It is a staple in our house!!

My love for Hummus started as a teen, I worked at a Mall and the Deli place sold the best hummus ever.. I would always buy it in the grocery store but it never quite compaired to the homemade Hummus Sammy use to make.

Well the last time we bought hummus it was $4.00 for a small container and we ended up spending $12.00 for some that would only last us a week and a bit.. so we went and searched You Tube for a recipe.. and came to this funny video.. I just had to share.. the Hummus song.. FUNNY

So here is my recipe for Hummus.

1 can of chick peas
2 cloves of crushed garlic
the juice of 2 lemons
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/8 cup of water
dash of ground roasted cumin
salt to taste
put it all in a blender and blend until smooth.. that is it.. so easy and delicious!!
Now it only costs us less than $4.00 for a huge amount.. and the family is eating it up like crazy!! yummy and good.

Hope you give it a try.
