Let’s take a break from family photos and talk about hummus. 😉
I like to take a break from blogging about the family’s I photograph and share things, like this hummus recipe, that would be a great resource for the same families I photograph. :O)
One of the many things I miss about my mom is her cooking. She made so many amazingly delicious recipes but made it look so effortless. Thankfully she taught me some recipes that actually were really easy yet still tasty. Making her recipes on a regular basis is how I keep her alive. She put love in her food. One of my favorite recipes was for hummus. I make this on a regular basis for when company comes over or if I just want to snack on some veggies.
One of the ingredients that makes this different from traditional hummus recipes is that it is made with cannellini beans. So many of my friends have asked me for this recipe, which is typically the mark of a classic recipe to keep in your arsenal. It takes only minutes to make and only cost a few dollars of ingredients so there is no reason to not make this recipe on a regular basis. In a world where time is of the essence, this is a healthy recipe that even the busiest of families can easily make.
My Super Simple & Yummy Hummus Recipe
1 Can of Cannelinni Beans (Wegman’s has a great store brand, and is only 65 cents per can)
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice
1 Clove of Garlic (although I love garlic so typically use 2-3 large cloves)
1/3 Cup of olive oil (I love Costco’s Kirkland brand of Organic Olive Oil as my everyday olive oil.)
Salt and Pepper to taste
You will also need a food processor.
Drain (01) can of cannellini beans in a strainer and rinse with water.
Add cleaned cannellini beans to your food processor.
Add (02) tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice
Add garlic cloves (I find you get more flavor when you mince the garlic cloves. At minimum, dice the cloves before adding.)
Process all of the above ingredients in the food processor until smooth.
Once smooth, add 1/3 cup of olive oil while processing.
Add salt and pepper to taste. (Start with 1/2 teaspoon for each.)

I like to serve my hummus as a dip with cucumbers, carrots, and pretzel crisps but can be eaten with so many foods. This is such a social food so I recommend it for parties.
Feel free to let me know if you make this recipe and like it as well. Share with your friends please.
