A healthy little snack : Homemade Hummus

Hummus. We love hummus. It makes us very happy. It was one of Jyselles first foods in fact she was called "the hummus baby" at our old farmers market lol she would eat  it by the spoonful. It looks like boy boy is following her lead too he loves hummus, not as much as he loves black beans but I digress. Hummus is super healthy and versatile so its a great thing to always have on hand. There are a handful of great store brands you can buy and I usually buy a tub a week but like I said we eat ALOT of hummus so its more budget friendly to whip up your own. Its fun too getting the little ones involved picking the flavors and watching it whirl around in the food processor ( Aaron loves that part ) and then sitting on the kitchen floor enjoying your creation together. =) Give it a try sitting on the kitchen floor isn't required =) I adapted the recipe from here and added some fresh herbs from our garden ( which I cant wait to share its coming along! )
 Happy snacking =)

  • 1 can no-salt-added chickpeas  rinsed and drained
  • 2 garlic cloves ( or more if you like garlic )
  •  2 tablespoons water
  •   2 tablespoons tahini 
  •   fresh lemon juice 
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 
  •   salt, pepper, n a little bit of cumin
  • fresh herbs (optional )
  • Put everything in the food processor and give it a whirl until its nice n creamy, scape the sides n add more water if you need. Enjoy!
