My New Favourite Hummus!

Hummus is one of my favourite foods ever! I'm always looking for new and better hummus recipes to try out, and this is my favourite one of the moment! 


2 cups cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed (a little less than 1 can)
1 tsp. kosher salt, to taste
2 cloves garlic
1/3 cup tahini (sesame seed paste) - Tahini can usually be found by the peanut and other nut butters in your grocery store
7-8 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice or 5-6 Tbsp. bottled lemon juice
2 Tbsp. water
4-8 drops of Tabasco sauce, to taste
Olive oil, for drizzling
Paprika, for garnish


Place all ingredients except the Tabasco and salt into a food processor and process until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the processor bowl as needed. Now add in the Tabasco and salt gradually, stopping to taste as you go. Add less or more depending on your taste preferences. 

Scoop the hummus out of the processor and transfer into a serving bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle paprika over the top. Serve with fresh veggies, pitas, crackers, or as a spread. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
