Homemade Humus

Homemade Humus


1 cup cooked garbanzo beans

1/2 pound, firm organic tofu (bean curd)

3 large cloves of garlic

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons sesame tahini

1/4 cup fresh parsley or cilantro

1 tablespoon, paprika or chili powder

2 teaspoons sea salt

1 teaspoon, black pepper


1. Blend all ingredients together, except paprika, in a blender or a

food processor until creamy.

2. Sprinkle paprika over the top as a garnish.

Tips: Will last in the refrigerator for seven days, but we only keep it for five days. Great as a spread in a sandwich, topping on a salad. Use as a pate or dip, or eat as a snack with flax crackers. Sprinkle a little paprika, parsley, or cilantro, diced finely for a nice green addition for the top of the humus. Drizzle a little organic olive oil on top. These additions make your humus really come alive!
