Homemade Humus



Do you like that middle eastern dish called humus?  It is made with pureed chick-peas?  We love it, but lately I haven't bought it much because it is a little pricey for the amount you get.  

I was low on our typical lunch making supplies so this morning I kind of experimented.  I will share my experiment with you:

Into the blender went half of a cucumber (my personal spin or version, not traditional as far as I am aware), and juice from half a lemon, along with half can chickpeas, some liquid, and then more water.  Can you guess?  

It was way to liquidey, so I poured it half out into another cup for later and put more drained chick-peas in the blender..... and it was still a little too thin for a dip, so............ I put ground flaxseed and some garlic powder, and the ground flaxseed did the trick with out changing the taste!!  Oh, also I splashed a bit of extra virgin olive oil.  

Thank you to God for our rich blessings.





Yippee!!  I found some sunflower seeds so I dipped into my humus and seeds with my veggies and it was quite satisfying.  I recommend you experiment and find your mix.  

Please share with us if you create something awesome!


Thanks for letting me share.

  1. Thanks for this, Tammy. My hubby and I have been thinking about making our own hummus. We like to think environmentally, and making our own will eliminate the many plastic hummus containers we seem to generate.
