Hummus is another staple food that doesn’t take too long to make and is healthy and delicious. Hummus can be used as a dip for chips, crackers and veggies. It also spices up sandwiches and wraps. I use it as a base for my pizzas when I make them at home!
- 1 15 ounce can of garbanzo beans or *2 cups of cashews
- 1/4 cup of tahini
- 1 tbs of lemon juice
- 1/4 cup of water
- 2 cloves of garlic chopped or minced
- 1/4 tsp of cumin
- 1/4 tsp of cayenne
- 1/2 tsp of sea salt
- a few dashes of pepper
Throw all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Now for some bathroom talk, we all know beans make you gassy. There is even a wonderful song about how they make you fart. But, don’t worry garbanzos usually produce the least amount of gas among all beans. Enjoy!
*So I’ve decided to add a little note here. You can substitute cashews for the beans if you have trouble digesting all beans. It doesn’t taste exactly the same, but it’s definitely still very good. I substitute cashews all the time because my body likes nuts more than beans.
