So good, we dare you not to eat right out of the container.

Thus is the go-to snack I always have in the fridge. The recipe is so easy.  And so delish, sometimes I get caught eating it right out of the container!!

Here are 4 more reasons to love hummus:

  • It's super satisfying and kills sugar cravings by helping balance your blood sugar.
  • Hummus offers you a great source of protein and “good” fat
  • It's an incredible source of calcium (from the tahini),
  • It contains cholesterol-lowering fiber.

Hummus Recipe

  • 3-4 fresh garlic cloves
  • 1 (15 oz) can of organic chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp hemp or extra virgin olive oil
  • 3-4 tbsp tahini (look for it in the same area as the nut butter at your grocery store)
  • 1 freshly squeezed lemon
  • 1/2 cup water if needed.
  • Optional: a few sundried tomatoes, fresh basil &/or toasted cumin + sesame seeds

Place all the ingredients (excluding water) together in a food processor or high power blender and blend until fully combined. Add water if necessary to desired thickness. Cut up a bunch of colourful veggies or enjoy with some high fibre, gluten-free crackers!
