Instructions
  1. Peel and chop the garlic
  2. Zest the lemon and cut the lemon in half
  3. Bring on the tahini - A savory paste of ground sesame seeds with the consistency of peanut butter. You'll find it in the ethnic foods aisle of most large grocery stores.
  4. Drain the garbanzo beans and reserve the liquid from the cans
  5. Add the drained garbanzo beans, garlic, tahini, salt, the zest and juice of the lemon and the Tabasco sauce to a blender with a 1/2 cup of the reserved bean liquid. (Do you like my little kitchen owls?)
  6. Blend the mixture, adding more reserved liquid, if necessary, until it has a smooth, creamy consistency. (if you run out of reserved liquid, add a little water). Taste the hummus and add more salt or Tabasco as needed. Sprinkle with a little paprika (if you have some on hand) and serve with vegetables or pita chips

  1. Maggie,
    I look forward to trying this recipe. The kitchen owls are definitely a nice touch. You could try to hide one in the pictures for each of your upcoming recipes! Sort of a “Find the Owl” theme . . . !
