True Lemon Hummus

to Prep & to Cook

Yields 1 (6 servings × 3)

I visit many off the wall food markets and often find some unique and delicious treats. This is my attempt at duplicating the a hummus I found at a little Mediterranean market in my home town. The secret is the lemon.


to taste salt and pepper

1 head roasted garlic

0.25 cup extra virgin olive oil

0.5 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon tahini

1 15oz can garbanzo beans


Drain and reserve the liquid from the can of garbanzo beans.

Place the beans, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid in a food processor.

Process for two to three minutes. Add some of the reserved liquid to get the desired consistency.

Serve with wedges of pita bread or fresh lavash.
