Remember these guys?
Well, until a few days ago they looked like this:
But now they look like this:
So those bland chickpeas and tahini from the cupboard?–taken up about 30 notches into the sassiest and spiciest hummus you could desire.
Sassy and Spicy Hummus
- 1 can chickpeas (or dried, rehydrated and cooked)
- 1/4 C tahini
- 1/8 C water
- juice of one lemon
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- dash of salt and pepper
- 1 t freshly ground cumin
- 1 t hot red pepper flakes
This is quick and easy: put all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Then eat it!
I like to eat hummus with carrots and other veggies instead of pita or chips because I don’t get enough vegetables in the day and I definitely get enough processed carbs. I can’t even keep chips in the house because I love them so much that I will eat an entire bag during a half-hour sitcom. Yeah, so I stick with the baby carrots.
I made some treats today that I’ll post about tomorrow. Until then!
