Meatless Monday: Hummus

So you got this post today in your inbox and you are thinking hummus? Great what else will I have for dinner. Hummus goes with so many different things and can be such an amazing food to have in your repertoire.

This is a family recipe and was present at every family gathering we like chick peas in my family.

2 cups of canned chick peas or dried chick peas that have been soaked (keep some of the water from the can)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 clove of garlic (for very flavorful you use up to 4 cloves)
1/3 cup of Tahini (sesame paste)
6 tbsp. lemon juice (2 lemons)
2 tbsp. water or liquid from chickpeas
8 dashes of tabasco or other hot sauce

Place all ingredients in the food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until it is well pureed but still had texture. Can be served with anything, I love it on pita bread but it can be served on endive leaves, celery, on salad or anything else.

It keeps in the fridge for a while so it is great to keep all week.
