Making classic hummus

For the tasty Mediterranean dish hummus, a spread made primarily from chickpeas that you can enjoy with vegetables, pita chips, or as a replacement for mayonnaise on a sandwich. It contains heart healthy extra-virgin olive oil and fiber-filled chickpeas.


  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 pinch salt

Preparation: With the motor running, drop the garlic into a food processor (fitted with a steel blade attachment) and process until finely minced. Scrape down the sides of the work bowl and add the chickpeas, lemon juice, oil, tahini, and salt. Process until completely smooth for 1-2 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary
