Classic Lemon Garlic Hummus

A rich flavorful hummus is comfort food to me. Not the kind you buy in a grocery store, however. There is a local mediteranean shop that sells hummus that I love, and then there is the homemade kind. Really, making hummus at home is so easy, I have no idea why I don’t do it more often! Enjoy on salads, with crackers, with veggies, in a wrap, on a sandwich, etc.  This is a basic recipe that can be altered easily with a change in seasonings. I use a little (non-dairy) milk to give creaminess without having to add additional oils. Why add extra oiliness when you don’t need it?  The flavor remains every bit as rich and decadent 🙂
You need:

1 large lemon, juice and pulp

1 can garbanzos

2 small garlic cloves

1 tbs tahini

1 tbs olive oil

2 tbs oat milk (milk of choice)

dash crushed red pepper

pinch sea salt

dash oregano

dash parsley
Blend all ingredients on high until smooth and creamy!

Garnish with smoked paprika and enjoy!!
