I only recently tried hummus (I know….how could I have missed out on that?!?). But now that I’m with the program, hummus is a regular snack for me. This recipe is extremely quick and easy and, paired with colorful fruits and veggies, presents beautifully. Not only is this a perfect everyday snack, it’s great to take to other events too. I’m sure my book club ladies will be seeing this very soon :). I really had no idea how easy hummus was to make or how many different variations there can be. So here is my basic hummus recipe….
Quick and easy hummus
1 15 ounce can of chick peas, rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1 tablespoon olive oil
Combine chick peas, garlic powder, cumin, and olive oil in food processor and blend until desired consistency (you may need to add a little more oil). Top with a sprinkle of paprika and serve with your favorite veggies or pita.
