I went to my relief society enrichment “meeting” last night and they did a fabulous job of sharing healthy recipes and different yummy ways to add fruits/veggies into your diet. One of the things that I absolutely LOVED was this hummus they served…and they gave us the recipe. Yum! I just made it today and let me tell you…it’s a little piece of Middle Eastern Heaven on a carrot stick. Ahhh….

1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas/Garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 T fresh minced garlic
1 T fresh lemon juice
2 T tahini (sesame seed paste)–instead of tahini…you can usePEANUT BUTTER and you can’t even taste the difference–at all. Use it–it’s fabulous.
1 tsp. ground Cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 T olive oil

Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined (but not totally smooth). Add the water and blend until smooth (be careful not to overmix). Drizzle the olive oil over the hummus and pulse a few times until incorporated. Pour into a serving dish and drool in delight! This is SO yummy. You can serve it with pita, carrot sticks, sweet pepper strips, celery, grape or cherry tomatoes, etc… You really have to try it. It’s phenomenal. Yum, yum!
