I must admit I tried this one on my kids many times before they actually started liking it. But now they snarf it. And it's so easy to make! Perhaps singing "Humma Humma Hummus" before you serve it helps. The moral of this story is: never give up making hummus...eventually your kids WILL break down and beg for more "Humma Humma Hummus." I use Mark Bittman's recipe from How to Cook Everything.
1 14-oz. can garbanzo beans (also called chick peas)
1/2 cup tahini (found in the global market section of Cub with the Greek foods--Krinos brand, if you're local)
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of 1/2 lime or lemon, or add more as you like
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. paprika OR 1 tsp. cumin
salt to taste...I use about 1/2 tsp.
water as needed if using blender
Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor. If using blender, add one Tbs. water at a time until hummus becomes blending consistency. Use as dip on crackers, chips, and veggies or spread over sandwiches and tortilla wraps. Before you know it, you're kids will be chanting "Humma Humma Hummus" at snack time!
