Ali’s Blender Hummus

In seminary our friend Joey shared a recipe with us for hummus.  We made it A LOT for a few years, but really haven’t for awhile.  No reason really, it just fell out of our rotation.

We decided to fire up the blender this weekend and to mix up a batch.  We look forward to enjoying it in the coming days with celery, cucumber, and peppers.  I sampled it before putting it in the fridge to chill this afternoon and it’s gonna be good!

  • 4-6 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1 fresh lemon (juice and pulp)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 can of chick peas (drained)
  • 1 can of white beans (undrained)
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons honey (optional)
  • salt to taste (optional)
  • cayenne pepper (optional)
  1. In a blender grind together the garlic, lemon, & olive oil.
  2. Add the chick peas & grind some more.
  3. Add the white beans (with their liquid) and blend until the whole mixture appears to have a smooth consistent texture.
  4. Add the tahini & honey (if using) and stir by hand.
  5. Add salt & cayenne pepper as desired.
For what it’s worth, my preferred method is with the cayenne pepper and without the honey.

    It’s been interesting to see survey results as they come in at TUMC. Over 50 percent showing an interest in Healthy Cooking Classes!
