pefect spring snack for a perfect spring day…

Earlier this week, I was over at my mom and she was making hummus. Hummus has a wide variety of uses and is a delicious snack. You can eat it with pita bread, fruit, vegetables, really anything you like. My mom made a beautiful plate of yellow grape tomatoes and apples sprinkled with lemon and fresh cracked black pepper.

Here is how you make the hummus. You will need:

–  a 16oz can of chickpeas

– 1/4 liquid from the can of chickpeas

-4 tablespoons lemon juice

– 1 and a  1/2 tablespoons tahini

– 1 and a  1/2 cloves of crushed garlic

– 1/2 teaspoon salt

– 1/2 teaspoon cumin

– 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

To make, drain the can of chickpeas saving 1/4 of the liquid.

In a food processor combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, salt, and blend for 3-5 minutes until a smooth paste is made.

To serve, place the hummus in the bowl and drizzle the olive oil combined with the cumin over the top.

You can serve right away with a variety of scooping items or use as a spread on sandwiched, pitas, what ever you can imagine! Enjoy!
