This really is not a cooking blog, but I thought you might like to try this tasty, healthy snack. This is my own recipe for hummus, so it may not be perfect. But it is a hit at my house! It will last in the 'frige about 5 days. Well, if it is not eaten by then.
1 can chick peas (garbanzos), drained
1/4 cup sesame tahini
Juice from 1 large lemon
3-4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped (depending on how much you like garlic)
pinch of salt
1/4- 1/2 cup olive oil
Place chick peas, sesame tahini, lemon juice and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Add olive oil in a steady stream until mixture comes together and appears to be light and fluffy. Add a pinch of salt, blend together.
Serve with fresh vegetables, homemade pita chips, rice crackers- whatever you like! The lemon rather lifts the flavors and gives it a fresh taste.
Hummus makes a nice light lunch or midday snack when you are flagging a bit. Plus, it is loaded with good things for you, so there is no need to feel guilty about consuming it!!
