A Quick Snack

Have you ever tried making Hummus? It's really easy, it tastes great, and it is really good for you. It is the perfect afternoon snack to fill you up.
This is all you need to get started....oooops! I forgot to put the tahini paste in the picture. (Come to think of it, I may have forgotten to put it in.... It was still good!)

Blend up:
2 cans of Garbanzo beans
(or one can White Northern Beans, and one Garbanzo)
2 or 3 tablespoons of tahini paste (sesame paste)
(you might have to ask where to find it in the grocery store.)
Juice of lemon (to taste)
Herb of your choice: Basil, Flat leaf parsley, mint....whatever you like.
Garlic- You can use fresh, roasted, garlic powder or garlic oil.
Greek Yogurt to taste. Once again you can use regular yogurt or sour cream even.
Water to smoooooth it out
Hummus is a taste thing. Just put in whatever tastes good to you! It's your house, do what you want!

Perfect for the 3 o'clock luullllll. Bake up some whole wheat pita chips at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes and you have yourself a nice, healthy snack.

  1. That is a favorite in my house too. I use the WW recipe because tahini paste is hard to find here. I think it is fine without it.
