I love to make fresh hummus before the start of a work week, it’s really yummy and so simple to make. Hummus is a great snack idea:) It’s an amazing source of plant based protein and fibre which means it will help regulate blood sugar levels thus keeping you fuller longer!
1 can of chickpeas (Eden brand is great & BPA free, drain&rinse)
2 clove of garlic chopped
3 tbsp lemon juice (real lemons!)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp olive oil
1tbsp toasted sesame seed oil
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
garnish with chopped parsley
Blend all ingredients in a magic bullet, food processor or vita-mix until you reach desired consistency(you may need to add a little water and stir as necessary)
Enjoy with toasted whole grain pitas, sliced vegetables or organic crackers!
