Garlic Hummus

Hummus is easily picked up at the grocery store in a tub, but it is just as easily made at home, and incredibly customizable. It can be any flavor you want — just toss your desired ingredients, like basil, roasted red peppers, or black beans in the food processor.

Ingredients

  • One  15 1/2-ounce can chickpeas
  • 1/4  olive oil
  • 1/3  tahini
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt

Directions

Place all ingredients in a 3-cup food processor. Blend until desired consistency, seasoning to taste. For thinner hummus, add more olive oil.  

Garlic Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Garlic Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
