Hi, I’m Lisa from A Leafy Life, back this month with a super easy Lemon and Garlic Hummus Recipe. This hummus is so delicious and addicting that once you start eating it, you won’t be able to stop. I know I couldn’t!

Hummus is one of those things that can be made a million and one different ways because you can make it with different beans, a variety of additives, and a mixture of spices. Sometimes, I prefer the simple, classic hummus. The kind made with chickpeas and tahini. For this recipe, I added plenty of garlic and lemon…yum!

The great thing about hummus is it’s simple to make and very good for you because of its healthy ingredients like chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, and lemon. I love to whip up a batch on Sunday and eat it throughout the week.

Now, there’s a big decision you need to make when using chickpeas in hummus….to skin or not to skin. If you want super creamy hummus, please, by all means take the skins off. If you are a bit on the lazy side (like me), leave the skins on. Totally up to you.

My Lemon and Garlic Hummus Secret Ingredient

Are you ready? Instead of using regular olive oil, I use lemon olive oil. Yep, if you like lemon, this is really worth purchasing. If you don’t want too much lemon, just use regular, but I just love the added lemony taste it brings to this hummus.

You can refrigerate the hummus for about a week. If you take it out and it is a little dry, feel free to stir in more olive oil. Use it as a delicious dip for chips, vegetables, or pita chips. Another great idea is to spread it on a sandwich instead of mustard or mayo.
