Hummus is really easy. So easy that I now refuse to buy the preservative-laden store variety. It’s a basic “pile everything into a blender and BOOM, you’re done” type of recipe. We’re having a party tonight, so I figured it would make the perfect dip, and the ingredients are a cinch to keep on hand.
This is a double recipe especially for those times when you’re entertaining. It makes about a quart (4 cups) of deliciousness. If you want less, just half it to scale back to only 1 can of garbanzo beans.
