This is a basic hummus recipe that I enjoy making because it is easy, quick and healthy. I don’t add a lot of salt, so you may want to add more to yours. My daughter actually likes this version better than the ones I have made with a lot more salt and olive oil. Give it a try and let me know if you like it or share your favorite recipe!
1 garlic clove
1 can drained chickpeas or cook your own (garbanzo beans) according to package directions
1 lemon freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon Tahini paste
1/2 tsp salt (or 1 tsp if you prefer)
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 Tblsp olive oil
Fresh parsley and paprika
In food processor pulse the garlic then add the chickpeas, lemon juice, salt, tahini paste, cumin and cayenne pepper.
While this is processing, add the olive oil in a stream. If you need more to make it smooth, continue adding. (I added a little extra lemon juice)
Place on plate or bowl and garnish with the parsley and paprika. I used smoked paprika and it added a nice flavor. Swirl olive oil on top also. Eat with veggies, pita chips, crackers, etc.
I love soups and chili on a cold winter day like today! The ones I truly love are not the most healthy, but to my delight I found this recipe; No Bean Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili by SkinnyTaste.
My photo does not do this justice, but this Turkey Chili hits the spot. I added cauliflower rice to the bottom of the bowl instead of white rice and it was not only delicious but very filling and not a lot of calories!
