Making your own hummus allows you to control the quality of the ingredients, as well as having a healthy, protein rich snack on hands for the kids.   Head to Family Fare and grab some fresh spices and extra virgin olive oil to make an extra delicious batch.

2 large cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained

2-4 cloves garlic, peeled

2-3 TBLS tahini paste

juice and zest of one lemon

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp oregano

1 TBLS fresh parsley

salt and pepper


Place all of the ingredients except the water in the bowl of a food processor.  Blend until starting to smooth out.  Add the water as necessary to thin out the hummus to a very smooth consistency.  Check your seasoning, add salt and pepper if needed.  Serve with veggies or crackers.
