Try one of many tasty recipes inside: Lemon Garlic Hummus
Store-bought hummus is fine, but nothing compares to the ultra-fresh homemade version. It’s surprisingly easy to make, and you can customize it however you want!
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the chickpeas and 2 tablespoons of the reserved chickpea liquid with the lemon juice, peanut butter, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the oil.Process the mixture for one minute, then scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Process for about another minute, or until smooth.Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl, drizzle with the remaining olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and serve with veggies and crackers (or anything else you like).
TIP: This nutty, garlicky hummus makes a great sandwich spread.
