Heavenly Hummus


Hummus is a great plant-based protein, high in vitamins and minerals. It supports bone and heart health, helps with digestion, decreases inflammation and fights illness and disease. What's not to love about hummus!

I know you can easily pick it up at the grocery deli, but it's worth the time to pick up a few extra ingredients and make it from scratch. The natural and fresh taste is well worth it!

Ingredients:

1 can (15oz) garbanzo (chickpeas), drained (save the water and try to use BPA free cans).

2 cloves garlic, peeled

3 tablespoons tahini

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1-2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/4th cup water (from the garbanzo beans saved water or fresh filtered water).

1/4th cup fresh, chopped Italian parsley (optional but gives it a fresh flavor).

Other optional ingredients: sun-dried tomatoes, fresh chopped basil, kalamata olives, roasted red pepper.

Directions:

Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until creamy. Refrigerate until ready to use. Serve with pita bread, crackers or vegetables as a dip. Also, great on sandwiches!
