Hummmmus

About the title:: I had to do it. Lots of m’s?! Delicious food! It’s only fair.

I have been making hummus (Normal number of m’s there. I can show restraint. [Unless we’re talking about M&Ms or chocolate chips. No restraint there.]) for a few or a couple of years now. I’ve gotten consistent and good… and fast. Please picture me, still in preschool teacher garb, coming home from school absolutely famished. I was crazed. I had a timer. I set it to time. I set to work; I was out of that kitchen in less than 3 and a half minutes with a cheese and spinach quesadilla, freshly made hummus, and tortilla chips. I’m that good.

Well, anyway, the hummus is that good:::

Necessary to the process:
1. Food processor
2. Tahini (ground sesame seeds in a jar)
3. Lemon or lemon juice

Hummus
Inspired by: Martha Stewart

1 (15 oz.) can of chickpeas, drained
1/4 c lemon juice
2 T tahini
1/2 t Jane’s Crazy Mixed-Up Salt (*optional)
1/2 t McCormick’s Grill Master Montreal Steak Seasoning (*optional)
1/4 t cumin
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil

In the chassis of a food processor place drained chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, and spices. Give it a whir until it looks like it’s beginning to combine but a little too chunky. Add extra virgin olive oil. Give it another whirl until it begins to look smooth and ready.

Taste to check seasoning. Add more if/as necessary. Whir (grind, chop, or pulse) to combine. Then take a spatula to remove the hummus first from the blade into storage container. Then the rest into the storage container. Let it chill in the refrigerator a couple of hours. (Ha. Or scoop it right out of the food processor, being careful to avoid the blades.)

*If you opt out of these very specific but basic spices in my household, you can always exchange them for sea, or kosher, salt and two cloves of garlic. I’ve also made a roasted red pepper version that’s delicious!
