Kitchen Equipment 

Food Processor 
Lemon Juicer

Recipe

1 Can of Garbanzo Beans
2 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil 
1 Tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning 
1 Cup of Tahini

Instructions

Before you begin

Squeeze the Fresh Lemons to produce 2 Tablespoons of Juice

Open the Tahini and stir thoroughly. (The oil separates to the top, you must combine the oil with the sesame mixture in the bottom of the container.) 

In order, add the following items to the Food Processor;

1 Can of Garbanzo Beans (with the juice)
2 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil 
1 Tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning 
1 Cup of Tahini

Blend for 2 minutes until smooth,

And that’s it! 

From here, you can fine-tune the Hummus precisely to your preferences. 

If you enjoy acidic foods, try adding just a Teaspoon more of Lemon Juice to brighten up the Hummus.

If you prefer a creamy Hummus, add a couple Tablespoons more of Olive Oil.

If you prefer a thicker Hummus, add some more Tahini.

If the Hummus tastes a little bland, add just a little bit more Old Bay. Be careful not to add too much, Old Bay contains a lot of salt and can ruin the entire batch of Hummus quickly! 

When serving, I always garnish the top with a dash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, sprinkled lightly with Old Bay and Fresh Parsley if you have it!
