Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Slow Cooker Hummus

1 cup dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 tsp salt
4 cups water
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp curry
1 T olive oil

Combine chickpeas, salt, and water in slow cooker and cover.  Cook on LOW for about 8 hours, or until chickpeas are very soft.  Drain and reserve the liquid in the slow cooker.  Mash the chickpeas with a potato masher, a fork, or mix with a hand mixer until creamy.  Add about 1/3 cup of the reserved liquid back in to cream a mashed potato consistency.  Stir in the garlic, cumin, curry and olive oil.  Add more liquid, if needs be.  Serve with pita bread or fresh raw veggies.

Review:
Eh.  It was okay.  What I really wanted to add for a punch of flavor was lemon  juice, but I was all out.  I think that would have really kicked up the flavor to a new level and made me more excited about it.  Next time I’ll do that, but I still have about 2 cups of this batch left to eat.  Those garbanzos really expand.  2 stars.
