Homemade Crockpot Hummus
Part of It’s a Keeper’s Slow Cookin’ Summer Series
- 1 16 oz. Package dried Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans
- 4 Cloves Garlic
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup Lemon Juice (fresh squeezed or from bottle)
- 1 tsp. Onion Powder
- 2 tsp. Garlic Salt
- 5 Cups water (might have to add 1 more cup later)
Directions: Pour the package of dried Chickpeas into the crockpot and add all ingredients.
Turn your Crockpot on low for 8-9 hours or high for 6. Check for doneness. If Beans are squishy and soft you can then drain out the water and put into a blender 2 cups at a time. I have found that you need to add 1/2 – 3/4 cup more water to blender. You can decide what consistency you like.
At this time you can do your own taste tests. Decide if you want to add more Garlic, Onion Powder or Garlic Salt. You can also try other flavors…the skies the limits..try a little Curry 1/2 tsp. per 2 cups. Yum!
