Easy Organic Hummus Dip

Today, I am sharing the quick easy hummus that only takes 5 minutes to make. Sometimes we're not prepared to soak chickpeas for 24 hours, then rinse, then boil and simmer, skimming the whole time.

This super easy hummus is a fantastic solution to a last minute munchie attack, and is always a crowd pleaser no matter how many times it is served. Just keep pulsing and tasting until you achieve your perfect blend.

Easy 5 Minute Hummus Dip

1 can organic garbanzo beans/chickpeas thoroughly rinsed and drained
4 large cloves garlic crushed, or more to taste
2 Tbsp organic tahini, or more to taste
4 Tbsp cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, or more to taste
8 Tbsp lemon juice, or more to taste
1/2 tsp freshly grated lemon zest (optional)
Celtic sea salt to taste
freshly ground pepper
paprika for garnish

Using a food processor or a blender (I like to use a NutriBullet) – puree the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, tahini, salt, and pepper. The blender will produce a smoother, finer-textured dip than the food processor. If you prefer a more rustic, chunky look, head for the food processor. Have a taste, and keep adding until you achieve your perfect blend.

Transfer to a serving bowl and chill. Grab some chips, flat bread, or veggie sticks, and enjoy!

Thanks for reading!
