Of course, to go along with my pita bread I had to make more hummus. The recipe that I use is under the price comparison, but of course, you can change it up as much as you would like!
So I did a price comparison today between making hummus at home or buying a tub. The price to buy a container at my local
Real Canadian Superstore = $5.49
Homemade = $1.34 ($0.89 per can of Chick Peas, $0.05 Garlic, $0.15 Tahini, $0.25 Lemon Juice)
You can even make your own Tahini, but depending on how much it costs to buy the sesame seeds, it may not be worth it
As you can see from my comparison, it is very beneficial to make your own hummus, it saves me $4.15 for every 2 cups of hummus I make
- 1 can Chick Peas – drained, juice reserved
- 2 cloves Garlic – peeled
- 1/4 cup Tahini
- 3 tbsp Lemon Juice (or juice of 1 Lemon)
In a blender, blend the garlic, tahini & lemon juice until smooth
Add the drained chick peas & enough of the reserved juice to make it the right consistency for you
Blend together until smooth & creamy
Serve with fresh pita bread from your oven!
