You can Save Money By Making Your Own Hummus!! Hummus is probably one of the easiest things you can make yourself. It takes only minutes to make.
Most store bought versions contain unwanted additives as well as GMOs. If you look at the ingredients in Sabra’s Classic Hummus, they are as follows:
Cooked Chickpeas (Chickpeas [Garbanzos], Water), Tahini (Ground Sesame), Soybean Oil, Garlic, Salt, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate Added to Maintain Freshness, Natural Flavors. Classic Hummus
Why is there soybean oil in hummus? Traditionally, it’s made with olive oil….and you certainly would not use natural flavors if you made it in your own kitchen. According to Wikipedia, Sabra is partly own by Pepsi. You know the soda people? They spent a lot of money lobbying against GMO labeling.
If you didn’t know, my mother in law is Turkish and this is her hummus recipe. It is really good! I have not tried freezing it, but I am sure you probably could. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.
Save Money By Making Your Own Hummus
- 2 cups cooked or 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup tahini
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1-2 tsp cumin (I used two)
- 3 cloves garlic or 2 tsp garlic powder (I use real garlic)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 T olive oil
- Process the chickpeas in the food processor or blender to get them started.
- Then add all the remaining ingredients until everything is smooth and well mixed.
If it is too thick, just add a bit of water until you get the consistency you desire. That is it. Sometimes I drizzle a bit of oil over the top. Enjoy!
