Simplicity in the Kitchen – Hummus (Revisited)

Since my last hummus recipe, I’ve tweaked it, and tweaked it, every week, trying to go for as easy a recipe as possible while keeping the same taste that I like in it.

I was using a blender, but please forgive me – I never owned a food processor, and thought it was only to grossly chop vegetables. Making hummus in a food processor is awesome!

Today, I forgot one of the main ingredients, and this is what it now looks like:

  • 3.5 cups chick peas
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Red hot
  • about 1/6 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbsp chili
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder

Did you notice what I forgot? The olive oil! I was surprised about the resulting taste, which barely changed!

I like it more hot than not, but you can tweak the amount of Frank’s Red Hot and chili easily. In fact, next time I’ll put less garlic powder, as the hummus’ hotness drowns the garlic flavor.


I still love eating hummus on vegetables or on bread. It’s very healthy too, compared to 99% of other dips and sauces.
