Have you tried all the different flavors of Triscuits? I have and I love them! My new favorite is Mediterranean Style Olive. It has nudged Parmesan Garlic to second place. For now at least.
When I grabbed the box at lunchtime yesterday, I noticed a suggestion to serve them with Hummus. That seemed like a very good idea to me, but, alas, I had no Hummus. HOWEVER…thanks to a Well Stocked Pantry, I had everything I needed to make my own Hummus in no time at all!
Easiest Hummus Ever
1 can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic
2-3 tbsp olive oil
- Combine all the ingredients in a high power blender and, starting on low, slowly increase speed until Hummus is desired consistency.
I’ve had a tendency in the past to make my Hummus too runny. I resisted the temptation to add more oil or water to make the blending easier. Instead, I used the handy dandy tamper that came with my blender. That made the process very easy. And my end product was very good if I do say so myself. I had it right away on my yummy Triscuits. There was enough to share with My Faithful Assistant, and to have later with some Olive Tapenade. Delicious!
I know this is not The Traditional Hummus recipe than Hummus purists may like, but it is very tasty and my people like it this way. It’s made with ingredients that many people already have in their homes.
You can jazz up your Hummus by adding tons of other ingredients like Cayenne to make it spicy, spinach to make it green, roasted tomatoes or red peppers, olives, etc. Let your imagination go wild!
