Welcome to my kitchen! This is a blog that is evolving as my life does. I like food, but I don't have all the time in the world to cook. So lately, I'm going with simple, easy recipes. I may switch that up occassionally and post something time-intensive, but that isn't what I'm about these days. If that sounds like you - I hope you enjoy some of these recipes.

1 14 oz can of chick peas with the juice reserved
3 tsp tahini
One lemon, juiced
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 pinch of paprika to top it off
Drain the chick peas and reserve the juice in a separate bowl for later. Add the chick peas, tahini, lemon juice, salt, garlic, and olive oil into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add juice from the chick peas as often as needed for the consistency you like. Transfer to another bowl to serve and top with a pinch or 2 of paprika to dress it up.
This is so much better than the store bought hummus. The recipe is easily doubled, but I only have a mini food prep and it wouldn't hold much more than this. So I halved the recipe from AllRecipes.com and it works perfectly! Enjoy!
