Kit’s Healthy Hummus
This is a great food to use as a dip with raw veggies and as a spread instead of butter or peanut butter. Packed with fibre and protein – and you get to eat much more of it, if you make it yourself. Enjoy!
2 tins of low sodium chick peas (540 ml each or 4 cups), drained and rinsed.
1 oz (2 tbsp) Tahini (100% ground sesame seed paste)
Juice and pulp of two fresh lemons (or to taste)
3 tsp crushed garlic (or to taste)
1/3 cup sliced jalapeno peppers (or to taste)
1/3 cup jalapeno jar juice (or to taste)
lots of ground black pepper
1/3 cup water
Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Mix on high until smooth while slowly adding about 1/3 cup of water or less to create desired consistency. Refrigerate. Keeps well in the fridge for up to two weeks. This is a good healthy source of fibre and protein.
* For variety, try adding other tastes like cumin or roasted red peppers or whatever else you can think of instead of jalapeno peppers and juice.
Have a Healthy Day!
