Hummus: The perfect healthy snack, starter or side dish. Easy to make, tasty, and great to have on hand just in case you get a bit hungry and want a satisfying quick bite of guilt-free deliciousness.
I had never made hummus before but I had a sudden craving for it a couple weeks ago and it seemed easy enough to make. Just a few ingredients were called for, and I had most on hand, so I threw together some things (with a few modifications) and it came out perfect! Just made it again today and substituted the oven-baked wheat tortilla strips with carrots sticks.
What you’ll need:
1 can of garbanzo beans
1/4 cup of lemon juice (I love the zesty lemon taste so I used a whole one)
1 teaspoon of cumin (maybe a tad more)
Crushed mini sesame seeds (optional)
2 tablespoons of olive oil (less if you use more lemon)
A dash of salt
Sprinkle with paprika
*Add a parsley garnish or a drizzle of oil for a tasty looking side or starter
