Hummus!!

No picture this time, BUT, at least there is a recipe! We LOVE hummus at our house, and we go through a lot! I try to get more protein in my little 5 year old who turns her nose up at most meats… and my 2 year old who likes something one day, and will spit it out and gag the next. SO FRUSTRATING! But, at the moment, hummus has been a hit! So, we’re going with it! I was completely out of hummus, but had a can of garbanzo beans and wanted to make some… so, I checked, and the only ingredient I didn’t have was Tahini… so I made it without. Pretty good! I would say it probably is a bit better with the Tahini (made from sesame seeds), but this was quite good! I even threw in some flaxseed meal to give my kids a bit extra protein. Whatever I can do!

Ingredients:

1 can of garbanzo beans
juice of 1 1/2 lemons
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/8 cup (approx) of olive oil
1 tsp flaxseed meal

 

Directions:

For the most smooth results, you will want to rinse the canned garbanzo beans in a colander, and then peel. You do not HAVE to peel the garbanzo beans, it just results in a smoother hummus. In a food processor (or magic bullet) you put all of the ingredients and blend until smooth! Done!

 

Enjoy!
