  1. Place the garlic in either a food processor or blender. Turn the machine on to mince the garlic.
  2. Then add the remaining ingredients starting with half the water. Process the ingredients until smooth. Stop to scrape the sides of the machine and add more water, a little at a time, until the desired consistency is achieved.
  3. Hummus will always thicken up after being refrigerated, so you may want to make it a little thinner than your end goal. Once your hummus is fully blended to a consistency you like, remove it from the machine and place in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to use.

 

Serving ideas: dip with veggies, massage into kale for a simple salad, use as a spread for wraps or sandwiches
