Our family is a big fan of Hummus used either as a dip for veggies or chips. It can also be used as a Sandwich spread in a pita. It has protein and a good alternative to creamy dips with excellent flavor. This is something that I like to take along when our family has gone on picnics, or all day Volleyball tournaments for extra protein.
- 2 cans of chick peas / garbonzo beans 540 ml / 19 oz, drained
- 1/3 cup warm water
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 1/3 cup Tahini Paste
- Juice from 2-3 freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 teaspoons / 10 ml. ground cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- Blend together in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.
This keeps for 2 weeks in the fridge, serve with home made tortilla chips, or veggies. It makes a good sandwich spread as well in a pita or on a tortilla shell loaded with chopped veggies and cheese.
