After my husband and I really sat down to evaluate our budget, we realized that we could be doing better in terms of our spending on food.
Although I have benefitted in the past from couponing, that can become a full-time job in itself. I mostly want to find ways to cut back in terms of the types of food we purchase and prepare.
Cupcake is a tad bit obsessed with hummus.
This recipe is super simple. You basically just dump all the ingredients in the food processor and press start. Voila!
I have found that the most important part is to peel the skins off the chickpeas. Some people skip this step, and the hummus will be fine- I promise. However, by peeling the skins, you get a much smoother texture. I prefer the flavor, too!
1 15 oz can chickpeas, reserve liquid
1 T minced garlic
2 T cumin
1/4 – 1/2t salt, depending on preference
1 T olive oil
1. Drain chickpeas. Reserve liquid.
2. Remove shells from chickpeas
3. Add chickpeas, 3 T of reserved liquid, garlic, cumin, salt and oil to food processor (or in my case, the Baby Bullet since I don’t have a grown up one haha)
I can’t wait to try adding other spice combinations! So good and SO simple!
