Hummus is a delicious combination of garbanzo beans, olive oil and garlic. This high-protein dip is excellent with vegetables, whole grain crackers or rice crackers and also makes a great sandwich spread.

  • 1 can garbanzo beans (also called chick-peas)
  • ¼ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Rinse and drain garbanzo beans and place them in a food processor or bender. 
  2. Add tahini, garlic, lemon juice and salt. Blend until smooth. 
  3. You can add more lemon juice or a few teaspoons of olive oil to smooth out the texture if desired.
