Ingredients to make hummus
Here is the recipe I use to make our own hummus. My wife loves to take this for her lunch. If you pair it with some Naan Bread, you have yourself a delicious meal.

What you need:

  • 1/3 Cup of Tahini (follow this link for the easy recipe)
  • 1 Can of Black beans
  • 1 Can of Garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt (add more if desired)
  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/4 Cup Olive oil
  • 1 TB Lipton's onion soup mix (Optional)(Follow the link to get the recipe)
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan cheese (Optional)
  • Food Processor (note: if you do not have one, you can use a blender instead. Although, it will be a little more difficult making sure all the ingredients get blended smoothly)

Putting it Together:
  • Add tahini to food processor
  • Using a sieve, drain the black beans and rinse them until the water runs clear. Add to food processor

  • If you are going to add the onion soup mix and/or parmesan cheese, do this first, before adding more salt
  • Taste and add additional salt, soup mix, or parmesan cheese, as per your taste
  • Place in bowl and store in refrigerator
  • The flavors will enhance as it sets
