This hummus can be whipped up in 10 minutes or less!  This recipe is simple to make and is perfect for a light lunch or served as an appetizer.  It's been really hot lately (above 90 degrees all week and really high humidity) and this weather has me craving some light and refreshing foods.  This is what I served myself up for lunch and it really hit the spot and helped me to beat the heat! 


15 oz. can garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 of a red pepper, quartered
2 tbs. tahini
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, smashed
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt or to taste

How To:

Toss all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth making sure to scrap the sides one time!  Allow to chill for 30 minutes or you can eat some now and refrigerate the rest for later (that's what I did)!
