Grocery Cart Recipe Swap-Hummus

Yum

(picture shown is of homemade black bean hummus)
Bob and I have been making our own hummus for quite awhile. Here is the recipe we use. I want to add that we are very creative with this recipe as it is very forgiving!

1 can of garbanzo beans (strained and rinsed)
2 cloves of garlic, minced (you can always use more)
2 tbsp tahini (look for it in the peanut butter aisle)
Juice from a lemon, a T or so
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

optional: add in 1 full roasted red pepper, or, 1 c black beans, or 1 whole artichoke from a can.

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor for a few minutes, or until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
Serve in a bowl with fresh veggies. This is a snack Bob will eat as he has gone all HEALTHY on me.
