Have you tried Hummus? It is so good! It is one of those addicting dips that unlike most dips is not horrible for you. It is naturally gluten free and high in protein. It doesn't take very long to whip together a batch of Hummus. Grab your blender and a can of Chick Peas!
Begin by draining and rinsing two cans of Garbanzo Beans.
Add some Tahini. (Tahini is sesame seed paste. It is thick and gloopy. It can be found in the ethnic food section of your grocery store.)
Pour in some Lemon Juice.
A little Salt.
And you have to have Garlic!!!
Add a little Olive Oil. Begin pulsing the blender. I add a tablespoon of water at a time to get it the consistency I want.
Serve with Pita Bread or Tortilla Chips. ENJOY!
