I can't tell you how good it feels to be in the kitchen again, making real food! And I thought what better way for me to get back to food blogging than by having a new hummus recipe. I was recently named "Queen of Hummus" by 2 of my favorite food bloggers, Kalyn and Alanna, which is very flattering. I love all things hummus, as you can tell from my 12 different variations in my archives. Not only is hummus super easy to make, but it's also a great healthy snack.
Those who know me best know I love anything spicy and horseradish fits that bill perfectly. Feel free to decrease or increase the amount of horseradish, based on your own personal taste. This spread is great on tortilla chips, crackers, or fresh vegetables.
1 can (15.5 oz) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp freshly ground horseradish (I used the jarred kind)
1/4 c good extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well combined. Chill in refrigerator for an hour or two to allow flavors to get friendly. Serve and enjoy!
