Homemade beet hummus took me about three minutes to make and it was a huge hit when I needed it at Christmas. Of course, the color is an eye-catching beet red and I garnished with green pepitas. Since it was last minute, I cheated and used canned organic beets, but I made it later with fresh roasted beets and “swoon” is a good description.
Avocado Hummus – I had two Hass avocados that needed using and a can of garbanzo beans sitting on the counter. Two garlic cloves, juice of one lemon and two minutes in the food processor later, I had a fabulous healthy snack that made my body do a Happy Hungry Goddess dance! At Whole Foods, I snagged the BOGO Veggie Chips from 365 (NON-GMO Certified too) and I got my salty crunch for 30% less fat and NO GMO’s. New DietNew JobSorted.
Lemon Basil Hummus is heaven in a bowl. I had this gorgeous bunch of basil from the Green Market and turning it into hummus seemed like the most sensible action. Quick hummus recipes are simple and addictive – areyou hooked yet? You should also try roasted Chickpeas which are like popcorn that is really good for you – sprinkle come spices and roast them!
I popped some pine nuts and Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top and it was delicious! I served with some grilled carrots, tiny heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, olives and grapes.
