This easy hummus recipe is a great appetizer for entertaining or a topping for your meals. It has so much flavor and is easily customizable to your preferences. Naturally gluten free, dairy free and vegan!
In a food processor, add garbanzo beans, lemon juice, lemon zest, cumin, red pepper flakes, paprika, salt, tahini, olive oil, and garlic cloves.
Combine until smooth.
Add in small doses anywhere from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of hot water to reach your desired consistency. Make sure you blend in between each addition. The hummus will set up a bit more in the refrigerator so keep that in mind when you're adding your water.
Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving to let the flavors meld.
Drizzle olive oil on top of the hummus and sprinkle with paprika just before serving.
