Simple Hummus Recipe



I am an evening snacker which is not such a good thing.  So, I needed to find a snack that would satisfy my hunger and a snack that would keep the weight off.  Hummus was a perfect choice, and its health benefits are endless.  Hummus is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, & high in fiber which helps lower cholesterol.  If you’re looking for an alternative to chips & cookies; I highly recommend the switch to hummus.


2 cans Westbrae Natural Organic Garbanzo Beans, 15 Ounce

2 lemons

3 cloves of garlic

3/4 cup of La Tourangelle 100% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil – For Olive Oil Lovers – Cold-Pressed, Non-GMO

1t Simply Organic Red Pepper Crushed


Drain the Garbanzo beans and give a little rinse before adding to your Cuisinart .  Now, add the juice of 2 lemons and  3 cloves of garlic to the Cuisinart; turn that puppy on and mix. While it is churning, add the olive oil helping to bring the mixture to a smooth consistency. Add a dash of salt & a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.  Slice up you favorite veggie’s, and there you go the perfect anytime snack.
