I read an article in the new AllRecipes.com magazine about making stuff homemade vs. buying it, and how it compares taste-wise and cost-wise. It said that homemade hummus was the best and was lots cheaper, so I gave it a try. It was easy (and cheap), but I just couldn’t get it as creamy as store-bought hummus! It tasted pretty good, but the texture just wasn’t quite right.

1. Place the garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl.
2. Drizzle olive oil over the garbanzo bean mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and parsley.
