Talk about cheap and easy!
Drain and rinse 3 cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and dump them in your food processor. Add 2 cloves pealed garlic, the juice of one lemon, a few shakes of Tabasco sauce, 1-2 teaspoons dried basil, salt & pepper and olive oil. Process until smooth, drizzling in olive oil as needed until the hummus is smooth. Adjust ingredients to taste.
I’m serving this tonight (with a big bowl of sliced carrots) for dinner alongside sausage sandwiches.
