Afternoon Snack - Homemade Hummus

The girls love to help me in the kitchen and this is the perfect recipe because I am using 2 appliances - a spice grinder and a food processor - so they each have their own appliance and button to press!

Nothing local here...just a healthy afternoon snack with a zing.

I always make this recipe:

1 can of chickpeas rinsed
Zest of 1 Lemon
Juice of 1 or 2 lemons (Squeeze the first one then decide if you want the other one)
Toasted Cumin Ground (You can toast the whole cumin seeds, cool, then grind using a spice grinder, or just use the pre-ground cumin)
A few dashes of paprika
1/4 cup of Olive Oil

Put everything into the food processor and then blend to your liking (we like it pretty smooth).

As a side note, this NY Times article is so upsetting. Why do we have to "Americanize" everything?
