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)

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.

TOTALLY agree about hummus!!! It needs to have a little texture to it to be delicious.
