Now that I am finally on the hummus train (if only the kids would hop on, too.....), I decided to give another recipe a try. This hummus is full of flavor and very tasty on fresh veggies. It would make an excellent appetizer for your Christmas party.
1(15.5 ounce can) garbanzo beans, drained, liquid reserved
1/3 cup tahini or sesame paste
4 cloves minced garlic
1/3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon dashes hot sauce
1 to 2 teaspoons salt
Place all ingredients (with 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid) in a food processor and process until coarsely pureed. Add more reserved liquid or lemon juice if needed. Hummus should be thick.
