Tonight's dinner: Hummus and Veggies. Although I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, my Vita-Mix, hummus is a definite NAY, NAY. It pulverizes it, and I like my hummus with actual texture. I usually use (and will continue to use) my little Braun hand mixer:
There are a million Hummus recipes floating around out there , and here's another one:
1 can Garbanzo beans (S & W Organic) 1/4 c. liquid (water, veggie broth, the bean water from the can, what-have-you) 1/8 c. olive oil 1/8 c. FRESH lemon juice sea salt to taste California Style Garlic Powder to taste pinch of cayenne pepper 2 Tbsp. Tahini (organic, roasted, MaraNatha if you can find it)
Method: Throw all ingredients in your food processor and blend to desired consistency.
I will sometimes add cilantro, or fresh garlic instead of powder, or a dash of chipotle sauce.
I'm a 40 year old, homeschooling mom of 3 (<------ insert bone chilling music here). I enjoy my family, movies, books, and vegan living. I'm always up for new recipes that will entice my family to my way of eating.
