      A good blender could work. I got my food processor as a Christmas gift a few years ago and it is my favorite thing to use in the kitchen! I highly reccommend getting one if you can afford it. Definitely not a stupid question :)

      Yum! This sounds really good! This may be a stupid question, but is there any other way to make hummus that doesn't involve a food processor? I've always wanted to try making it, but I don't have a food processor. Maybe I'll just have to go out and invest in one...
