Homemade Hummus: You'll Never Buy It Again!

A few weeks ago I went to a friend's birthday potluck picnic in Prospect Park. The food spread was so impressive! People went above and beyond to make their most delicious recipes. But one that really stood out for me was this hummus, made by our friend, Sogol. It was seriously the most amazing hummus I've ever tried. So good, I nearly finished it all! I just kept on dipping some toasted pita -- it was heaven. And Sogol, the brilliant maker of this perfect hummus was nice enough to share her recipe! So here it is. I promise, you'll never buy store bought hummus again. :)

3 medium sized cans of chickpeas (you can get away with 1 or 2)
8 oz. Tahini
2 garlic cloves (sliced)
Lemon juice to taste (about 4 should do if you like it extra tangy)
Olive oil to taste
Parsley leaves
Paprika (optional)
Coarse sea salt

Add the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil (both to taste) in a food processor. Once blended, add tahini to taste. Then it's just a process of tasting and adding more lemon juice, tahini and salt.

To top it off put some parley leaves and olive oil in the processor and blend them up to make parsley oil and drizzle over hummus, add some paprika, lemon juice and coarse salt on top of it all.

Thank you, Sogol!
