The Great Vegan Staple

Hummus. Real original right? Maybe not, but the reason hummus is a staple is that vegans and omnis alike can enjoy it. There are a few things you can do to make hummus better though. First off, canned beans are for chumps. They have loads of sodium, are costly, and it's not that hard to prepare your beans from scratch anyway. Additionally, respect the traditional, but don't be afraid to make it your own. The inclusion of hot sauce, in this case Cholula, is our own touch and it serves the dual purpose of providing a bit of spice AND a little acid as well.

20 oz. cooked chickpeas
2 large garlic cloves
1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. hot sauce (Cholula Original)
1/2 tbsp. salt
1 tsp. cumin
3 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice

Instructions: Just whiz it all up until smooth.
Serves: Bring friends.
