RECIPE - Hummus done Many Ways!

I love hummus! It is a great protein packed dip that can be changed up SO many different ways.  It can be a dessert, a starter or a meal!  It is so cheap to make too, I stock up on chick peas when they are on sale for $.97! So Enjoy and make sure you try all the variations too!

  • 1 can chick peas drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini (omit if there are sesame allergies)
  • 1/4 cup olive or omega oil
  • 3 - 4 cloves of garlic
  1. Put everything in a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend on high to desired texture.
  3. Serve and enjoy!
  • Spicy Hummus - make as above, add 2 tsp of your favorite hot sauce
  • Roasted Red Pepper and Feta - make as above, add 2 tbsp of caned roasted red pepper to blender, place mixture in oven proof dish, crumble feta on top, broil on med. until warmed.
  • Roasted Garlic - omit raw garlic from above and replace with a roasted garlic.
