Simply Delicious Hummus!

I am a HUGE fan of hummus! I love plain, red pepper, roasted garlic, caramelized onion and all other variations of hummus! Hummus that the store costs anywhere from $4 something to $7 something (depending on size and fancy pants brand). Making hummus is not only EXCEEDINGLY simple, BUT doesn't cost much, considering that the ingredients that DO cost the most, you get the most out of! Here is my VERY SIMPLE and favorite recipe for hummus. You can take this recipe and build off of it. Caramelize some onions and then throw it in. Roast a red pepper, take the skin off and seeds out and throw it in. You like garlic? Put extra in. Spinach and artichokes. Whatever you like!
1 can (drained) chick peas
1/4 cup lemon juice
1-2 cloves garlic minced or chopped
2 tablespoons sesame tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste.

Throw all the ingredients into your food processor. Blend away until smooth! Break out some celery, carrots or pita bread and enjoy your heavenly homemade hummus! Mmmmmmm!
