Easy Hummus: Drain a large can of garbanzo beans (chick peas). Put in a blender. Season with crushed black pepper, red pepper flakes, to taste. Drizzle in 1/2 cup Drew’s Lemon Goddess Tahini dressing. Pulse until blended but still thick enough for a dip-like consistency. Adjust dressing amount to taste and thickness. That’s it.
