Try adding your favorite herbs to a batch of hummus. I bet you’ll find some combinations that will become your new favorites. We love this combination of rosemary and oil-free hummus on sandwiches and for snacking with fresh slices of carrots, cucumbers, toasted pitas, or dates. Yes, you read that right – dates. Try it, you may be surprised how good that combination is.
- 3 cups - cooked garbanzo beans (about two 15 oz cans, drained, and rinsed)
- 2 Tbs - tahini
- 1/4 cup - fresh rosemary leaves, loosely packed
- 3 Tbs - lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp - garlic powder
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth. Add a tablespoon or two of water to thin the hummus if needed. Salt to taste.
Adjust the flavors to taste. We often use 5 Tbs of lemon juice instead of the 3 listed above. Have fun with the flavors and make it your own.
