In our house hummus is a favorite snack. In fact if I give Ethan pretzels without hummus he asks where the hummus is! Hummus is very good for you, it is high in vitamin C and iron. It is also a very high source of protein. You can serve it with many different things, the most common is with pita bread or crisps and cut vegetables.
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
- 1 can chickpeas - drained
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp tahini
- Olive oil - a few tbsp - just enough to loosen things up
- 1-2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Salt and pepper
Drain the chickpeas. Place all the ingredients in the food processor minus the olive oil. Blend until a thick paste forms. Drizzle in the olive oil until it loosens up and blends smoothly.
Keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Eat with cut up vegetables, pita chips, or pretzels. Enjoy!!
