(Natalie’s recipe. Hope you enjoy!)
2 cans garbanzo beans drained (I like Bush’s brand. They blend more smoothly)
2 large garlic cloves, skinned
1 t salt
¼ cup tahini
1/3 cup plus 2 t olive oil (extra light, mild tasting)
2 T fresh squeezed lime juice
¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
Put all ingredients into blender and blend till smooth.
Natalie’s notes: I have found that the specific ingredients make a huge difference in the flavor of the hummus. Using fresh squeezed lemon and lime juice are important for the best flavor. I have tried other brands of garbanzo beans, but they don’t blend as smoothly. Our family eats a lot of hummus, so we usually double this recipe which brings the olive oil measurement to ¾ cup.
