Sesame-Free Lemon Hummus

Hummus is a regular snack in my house, and I love serving it with fresh veggies as an appetizer. One ingredient that is common in hummus is tahini, or sesame paste. I haven’t yet tried my toddler on sesame, and also have a few family members that aren’t fans of the tahini. I served this sesame-free hummus at a dinner party recently, and it was a big hit. It’s simple to put together with just a few ingredients and your food processor. For a twist, you can throw in some roasted garlic, pesto, or roasted red peppers!

Sesame-Free Lemon Hummus

makes about one cup of hummus, which usually serves 6 people as an appetizer

15 oz can of garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 clove of garlic
juice of 1 lemon, about 1/4 cup
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 tablespoons or so of water  or lemon juice if you like a strong lemon flavor
zest of half a lemon

Add all of your ingredients except the water to a food processor bowl. Puree, and mix until smooth. Add your remaining lemon juice or water until it reaches your desired consistency. For the best flavor chill your hummus for  at least an hour.
