I love hummus, but it can be expensive and there are always so many additives to them. So, I decided to create my own, I found a recipe and bought the ingredients and started to create it! Hummus is an easy recipe that anyone can do; the hardest part is finding the products at the store!
I bought a can of chickpeas, one medium bell pepper, Sesame Tahini, and one lime. At home, I already had olive oil, water, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. It is relatively cheap because I only spent $6.00 on the tahini (which is 15 oz and will last a while), $0.50 on a lime, $1.00 on a pepper, and the chick peas for $1.40. In total, I spent what seems like a lot, $8.90. But, the tahini will be reused for other recipes.
Before mixing everything together, I cut the red pepper into one inch cubes. Once all of the other ingredients were measured out and opened; I began adding ingredients into a blender, on low puree setting.
After the pureeing of the ingredients is done to your liking; pour it into a dish. Garnish if you wish; I used the top of the pepper. Then, enjoy with fresh vegetables, pita chips, or crackers.
