My Sister’s Hummus Recipe

Hummus and Carrots

This doesn’t require any cooking and if you don’t have any tahini sauce peanut butter makes a great substitute! We love the flavor of  the scotch bonnet pepper, a relative of the habañero, so we add it to most everything,  but chilies will do just as well. Hummus is delicious with raw vegetables like carrots, celery, cucumbers, and peppers.

3 garlic cloves (minced)
19 oz can chick peas, drain and reserve the liquid
¼ c tahini (sesame seed paste) or peanut butter
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ c liquid from chick peas
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp salt
2 small scotch bonnet peppers seeded

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. That’s all there is to it! Enjoy!
