Happy Homemade Hummus
Hummus can be used as a dip or as a spread! Enjoy the health benefits hummus offers: Chickpeas are rich in protein and carbs that help stabilize blood sugar; Tahini is also high in protein and is a good source of calcium; Lemon and garlic are packed with antioxidants that fight viruses and bacteria; Olive oil can protect the heart from disease as it’s low in saturated fat.
1 15 oz. can organic chickpeas/garbanzo beans
1/4 cup tahini
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Small pinch of sea salt to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons water
Rinse chickpeas in a strainer with cool water. Blend ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add more water if you prefer a thinner, runnier texture. Drizzle with olive oil and serve with fresh baby carrots or gluten-free crackers.
