The main reason I'm posting this here, in my pond blog, is because foods like hummus are part of a sustainable living solution. Less of the pork/chicken and beef meals that use more resources than the amount of food they supply means more sustainable. Don't get me wrong, I like a good steak every now and then. But I rarely buy it to make at home. At home I try to eat more earth-friendly. Smoothies, fresh fruit and vegetable juices, whole grains and hummus all contribute to my personal meal planning. I hope you try it! Enjoy!
I've put a link at the bottom. It's to a site that has lot's of recipes of hummus as well as some history. It's where I got my courage! Once you've made it, you'll be making it all the time! Shoot, a 4 oz container from a health food store costs about $4! This makes about 8x that for less! Enjoy!
2 cans Garbanzo beans (or Chick peas - same thing)
2 Tbs of the following:
Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. That's it. Fresh, fast, inexpensive and really healthy.
You can add almost anything you like to make it special, I do the following combos:
3-4 Tbs of Sun dried tomatoes
1/2 Jar of roasted red peppers and 1/2 can black olives or do each as a separate flavor.
Or use different beans! It is standard to use the chick peas, but try some black beans or lentils. Different flavors but all good fiber and protein.
