In a previous post, I discussed the five weight-loss friendly snacks that don’t taste like cardboard (or leave your hungry). Number five was eating vegetables. I realize for some people who are new on this healthy eating lifestyle journey that eating vegetables can be rather boring or bland and they need a little extra motivation to include them in their diets.
This week I have an easy peasy recipe for hummus (all my recipes featured are super simple because I don’t like complicated). So easy that you just literally take all the ingredients below and throw them in a food processor (or my personal fav the Vitamix). The recipe below makes about 2 cups of hummus.
Step 1 (the only step) – take the ingredients and toss them in a food processor.
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained & rinsed
⅓ cup tahini
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 dash salt
1 dash pepper
Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. You may need to thin it out with a bit of water, so add it 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time and blend.
Swap tip: Don’t like sesame? Use an avocado in place of the tahini, and olive oil in place of the sesame oil.
Serve & enjoy!
