Hummus for Margaret

This is not an exact recipe for hummus, but it is easy and works for our family. Feel free to add any ingredient that you like or leave something out. ( I would keep the beans, though)

Place in the bowl of a food processor:
2 cans of garbanzo beans, rinsed
1 clove garlic, peeled
2 T lemon juice
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
Process until smooth, add olive oil in a stream (about 1/4 cup) until desired consistency is reached.

Add ins: chopped sun dried tomatoes
marinated artichoke hearts (I use the marinating liquid in place of the olive oil)
roasted red pepper
any herbs
Keep refrigerated. It's great on pitas, crackers, veggies, sandwiches, or if you're John Patrick, a spoon. Good luck!


  1. Mmm I love your hummus. I thought you put tahini in there.
