Hummus recipe

Here's one of my favorite recipes for a savory snack. 

Chickpeas are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are packed with plant protein and keep you feeling full for longer. Whip up some hummus and add this superfood to your diet. 


  • 1 BPA-free can of Chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved 
  • 1/2 cup Tahini 
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil 
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, peeled 
  • 1 Lemon, juiced 
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste 
  • Optional: Parsley, Cumin, Paprika


  1. Place chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice in the bowl of your food processor 
  2. While processing, slowly add the reserved liquid (or water) until reaching a smooth consistency
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add paprika or cumin to taste
  4. Place in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with paprika, and garnish with chopped parsley
  5. Serve with sliced veggies (red peppers, carrots, cucumber, celery) or toasted pita chips
