Tried and True Hummus

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by v.czaska

My husband(who is a hummus fanatic) and I worked very hard to come up with the perfect hummus to suit our tastes...not too lemony and the tahini(sesame paste) is not overpowering. Being Armenian, hummus was a staple in my home growing up. Even people who aren't too keen on hummos have converted after tasting this!

I absolutely love this recipe! I've been making this recipe consistently for the past couple of months and have completely stopped buying hummus from the grocery store. I tend to make just two minor revisions to this recipe: I cut the garlic in half and drizzle two TEASPOONS of olive oil over the finished product rather than two tablespoons.
