Hummus: a recipe by quornflour

20120609-193859.jpg

This past week I went to the farmers’ market and there were some really bright delicious looking sprouts, so I bought some.
For some reason sprouts make me want hummus, so this morning I made some for lunch.
It is super easy, and really, one of those foods that is pretty hard to mess up, though not impossible, here is a delicious recipe that I threw together this morning. The yield on this is pretty big, so it is great for parties or to make to have for the week.

In a blender add:

2 cans (15.5oz) garbanzo beans (drained*)

1 can (15.5oz) black beans (drained*)

4 cloves of garlic

the juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 teaspoon paprika

3 tablespoons EVOO

1/4 cup tahini

* if you drain your beans you will need a highpower blender or a food processor and your hummus will be thicker, if you are using a regular blender you may want to leave at least one cans worth of liquid in the hummus to prevent motor burn out.)

Blend until smooth.

Serve it with pitas, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots and of course sprouts!
