Hummus is a great hit in our house with the kids, and its a perfect way to get them to eat raw veggies. Slice cucumber, carrots, baby tomato to go with it, and in no time they will be munching them down.
For those who dont know what Hummus is, it is one of the most popular Middle Eastern dips around made from chickpea's. Its super healthy!
Here is a wonderful recipe that I use.
1x 450g can of drained chickpeas ( reserve liquid)
2 Tbsp Tahini. I find Natures Choice Tahini to be the best around.
Tbsp extra virgin cold pressed oilve oil
2 garlic cloves ( finely minced) or you can use garlic salt
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp cumin ( dont leave this out, as it really rounds off the dip)
salt to taste
Combine chickpeas and Tahini in a food processor and blend well. Add reserve liquid as needed and all other ingredients. Blend until you have a paste.
Serve as a dip or as a spread. Enjoy!
