Home Made Hummus

We love a good hummus but the stuff you find at the grocery stores is neither good, nor good for you. Reading the ingredients list is enough to make you want to give up food period. When the mood hits we make our own hummus, and we believe it is the best hummus in the world.

Home Made Hummus
2 cps Cooked, drained, and mashed chickpeas
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp chili pepper
1 Tbsp salt
1/8 cp Sesame Oil
1/4 cp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

Add the Sesame oil first and adjust the amount of olive oil to get the correct consistency.
Add spices and mix well.
Adjust the spices to suit your own tastes.

Serve hummus on warmed flat breads or even crispy tortillas. With the right spices it can also be used as a substitute for peanut butter, though not as thick.
