Need an Appetizer in a Pinch! Simple & Delicious Hummus, Gluten Free

Easy and delicious Hummus!

Easy and delicious Hummus!

My husband came home from work today starving, wanting a “dip” of some sort to munch on.  I had purchased some chickpeas with the intention of making hummus, so what better time than now!  5 minutes later we were stuffing our faces with an assortment of veges and chips that we generously covered in this hummus.  Simple, quick and oh so good!

Ingredients:

1 can (16oz) low sodium chickpeas, drained
2 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1/3 cup olive oil 
2 Tbsp tahini
Juice of 1 medium lemon
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp Sriracha hot chili sauce (optional)

This recipe was slightly altered from the “Greatest Ever Low Carb” cook book

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend for about a minute or until desired consistency.  Serve with an assortment of vegetables or chips.  This is a pretty basic hummus, but you can get as creative as you want.  Sun-dried tomatoes, roasted peppers, more garlic, more spices, the possibilities are endless.  Share your variation in the comments.
