I've taken a real liking to hummus lately.  In the past, it wasn't something I was excited about, mostly because the hummus I had was rather bland.

Now I have found several recipes to make my own and what a difference!  This is a highly nutritious snack, especially when you use fresh veggies to dip into it.

Here is just one of my recipes.  Try it!

1 clove garlic
1 19 oz. can garbanzo beans
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

In a food processor, chop a large clove of garlic.  Combine the rest of the ingredients in the processor and process on high until well blended.

I often get dried garbanzo beans at a natural food store and use those in recipes instead of canned.


  1. Tahini can sometimes be hard to find, but it is SO much better than the store bought. Thanks for a new recipe to try!

  2. That does sound good! :)

    BTW, your vest is airborne at this moment. I am waiting for the text that it is safely on the ground and in Catherine's hands at the baggage claim.
