More Hummus Please!

Here is a very simple hummus recipe that is delicious as is or as a base for adding other flavors.

First, you need these ingredients


1 can of chick peas (garbanzo beans) reserve liquid

Juice of 1 lemon

1 Tbsp Tahini

1 clove garlic

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sea salt, or to taste


Add everything, except the reserved liquid, to a food processor or blender and blend until desired consistency adding the reserved liquid just a little at a time if needed.  I usually only use about 1-2 Tbsp in all.



I take half of the batch out for Sebastian and add a little more distinguished flavor for myself.


1/2 tsp of ground cumin and 1/4 tsp hot madras curry powder

Mix this in for an Indian flavor! Thanks Rhea for this delicious idea!


For you:

Chop up some green pepper, mushroom, avocado and spinach…


and stuff it all in a pita pocket with hummus spread on the inside!

For baby…

Hummus on wheat toast with sliced avocado.





GONE! Approved!
