Make Shit Mondays Home Made Hummus

i haven't posted a make shit mondays post for a while but today is monday and i am whipping out a batch of hummus, that garlicky spread from the middle east that is really good with pita bread or chips. Its made mostly of chickpeas, which are shaped sort of like a bunch of tiny boobs.

It has only a few ingredients:

1 16 oz can of chickpeas or the same amount of boiled chickpeas
1/4 cup liquid from can of chickpeas, or water.
3-5 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

First, drain chickpeas and set aside liquid from can. Then, put everything in the blender and add the liquid you set aside. blend it for like 2 minutes or until its smooth.  

i used limes instead of lemons, since our entire household has like ten million limes right now. we are currently in love with limes and we eat limes with everything. like the time i put limejuice in my coffee. ok that was a lie but you get the point. 

 also, a good idea if you are planning on ever being a super talented cook like me, always be prepared for potential glitches. Like a blender breaking and running out of olive oil and undercooking your chickpeas. i found this ancient hand crank blender in some drawer, because i am awesome.

actually, this whole recipe turned out terrible and now  i have to clean nine million dishes and although i am smiling, i hate everything and i miss my mom.

k bye
