In the mood for a quick snack? Looking for something light yet packed with protein and healthy fats? Pressed for time? This recipe is for you.
1 can garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained
the juice of one lemon
1 small clove garlic, peeled
1–2 T sesame tahini (more for a richer hummus, less for a healthier one)
1 T olive oil, more for garnish
salt and pepper to taste
1/4–1/2 a jalepeño (optional, optionally roasted)
generous pinch of sumac
Throw everything into a food processor or a powerful blender and blend until smooth. Serve with crudités or these lovely lemon pita chips.
