Quick & Easy hummus: A recipe review

The other day I came across this recipe for hummus on Pinterest:

Best Ever 5 minute Microwave Hummus

Now I’ve always wanted to try making my own hummus. I was out of hummus, and TJ’s stopped selling my favorite kind- horseradish!- so I figured it was a perfect time to try out the recipe.

I used a tablespoon of squeezable organic garlic, and just 1 tablespoon of olive oil (the good stuff my dad brings back from Portugal!)

I had to buy Tahini from the grocery store with different cultural foods.

The author of the recipe writes that she could eat this stuff with a spoon. I agree. It’s totally perfect.

I made it in the blender, which was perfect because this made a LOT of hummus! It blended perfectly in like fifteen seconds.

I made it two days ago and it’s more than halfway gone. Mostly consumed by me. Trust me, this stuff is as good as the recipe suggests.

I can’t wait to try it again. I need to experiment with mix-ins now. Where can I find horseradish???

My favorite way of eating it? Power veggie sandwich.

Spread your hummus on Ezekiel bread.

Be very generous. Serving sizes do not apply to homemade items because YOU CHOOSE YOUR SERVING SIZE. Hehe.

Cut up and add your favorite veggies. The more colors, the better. My weapons of choice included fresh spinach, yellow bell pepper, and grape tomatoes. I suggest normal tomatoes because the grape guys will fall out of your sandwich. P.S. I suggest adding avocado as well. When I made this sandwich again, I added some and it made it 100000x better.

Sandwich that baby and enjoy while sitting on the step in the front of your house. It’s a beautiful day. Enjoy it.Winking smile

  1. This looks amazing! Hummus is ridiculously hard to find here and I’d love to make some myself, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to find any tahini.

  2. I absolutely love hummus!!! I haven’t made it myself for a while though. Like five years ago I was hummus obsessed and experimented with making all kinds – roasted garlic, roasted pepper, green chile, sundried tomato… This makes me want to try it all again! 🙂

  3. Looks yummy! I made gluten-free, vegan banana-blueberry-mango muffins over the weekend–they were to die for!

    I’ve actually been a vegan for going on five years so, obviously, I very much approve of plant-based diets 😉 I originally gave up meat/fish/eggs/dairy for ethical and environmental reasons, with the health benefits being just the cherry on top!

    Have a great rest of your day! xoxo

    • Hi Kris! 🙂

      I am so inspired by your vegan lifestyle!! I am reading your blog now and I love it. You are a great writer and I’m excited to keep reading and following your blog. Your recipes look delicious. 🙂

      I hope you enjoy your night!
