Quick Hummus

Traditional hummus involves soaking and boiling dried garbanzo beans for hours. This great recipe gives you the same great taste without all of the time and effort.
  • 4-6 cloves garlic
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans -- drained and liquid reserved
  • 4-6 T. sesame paste or smooth peanut butter
  • 2 handfuls fresh parsley or cilantro leaves
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 pinches ground black pepper
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2/3 c. extra virgin olive oil

Chop the garlic finely in a food processor. Add the beans and 1/2 of the reserved liquid and process finely or to desired consistency. Add the sesame paste or peanut butter, parsley or cilantro, lemon juice, black pepper and salt. Process the mixture until it forms a paste. Drizzle in the olive oil and process until it reaches the consistency of mayonnaise.
