Basic Hummus

I got back from the Blathering last night and I needed something healthy after a weekend of indulgences. This hummus is my go-to basic recipe. It takes two minutes and costs under $2 to make. You can jazz it up with roasted garlic or sundried tomatoes, experiment with fresh herbs, add some spice, or even throw an avocado in for some creaminess if you're feeling crazy. Or you can keep it simple like I often do.

Buzz the following in a small food processor:

1 can (398mL) chickpeas, drained and rinsed well
1 clove fresh garlic
juice of two lemons
1 - 2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper

Serve with fresh veg for maximum smug hippie points.
