Hummus can be a spread, a dip or a topping when making a bowl. It requires few ingredients and is extremely simple and quick to make. Hummus is also high in protein and high in fiber.
This recipe makes 2 1/2 cups and keeps in the refrigerator for 5 days
3/4 cup of dry chick peas (Soak overnight, healthier and better than canned)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 garlic cloves
4 tbsp tahini
Put cooked chickpeas and other ingredients in a food processor or blender. Process to a smooth purée, adding some of the cooking liquid until you get that consistancy.
I then drizzled some olive oil, sprinkled with paprika and served with some crudités, pita wedges and crackers
