How to Make Homemade Hummus - With Mustard March 31 2014

After buying tubs and tubs of mass-produced hummus, I wanted to learn how to make my own at home - but with a twist. What's that twist you say? Fresh garlic cloves are a staple in your basic hummus recipe. So, I figured, why not add mustard to make it my own? Ladies & Gents, here's my version of absolutely delicious hummus (seriously, get off your computer and go make this):

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Clove Enounter - Garlic & Oregano Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  1. In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic with the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic mustard, cumin, oregano, and salt until smooth and creamy. Make sure to scrape the bowl to get everything incorporated. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water as necessary to achieve the desired consistency. (I didn't add any)
  2. Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the paprika before serving.
  3. Serve alongside toasted naan (you can buy it in bulk in Costco) or pita chips. Your choice!

PS: This is SO easy. It literally takes minutes. The biggest pain is cleaning the food processor. Get on it.
