Hummus!!

Hello lovely friends, family and blogging buddies! I hope you all are doing wonderful today!

Today I thought I'd share a recipe I recently found for something that I have just become very fond of... Hummus. Holy deliciousness! We recently went to dinner at a Lebanese restaurant and had hummus as an appetizer. I've had it several times before, but for some reasons my taste-buds just went bonkers (yup I said Bonkers) and now I can't get enough of the goodness that is hummus.

So here's whatcha need:

4 cloves of garlic, minced
2- 15oz cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained.
2/3 cup tahini
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
and add salt if needed.

In a food processor add all following ingredients. Process until smooth.

I downsized this recipe and made exactly half,
added a little EVOO and lemon juice to top and voila!
YUMMY Hummus!

Not to mention this recipe is so darn easy and it's really good! You should try it!

And guess what! I'm so excited because:

ZOMBIELAND
just came out on DVD today, and you bet I've already purchased it! Jon and I LOVE zombie movies and this one is definitely a buyer. Not to mention Woody Harrelson is a hoot in the movie!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hummus is perfect... and not as fattening as some other snack... escpecially if you eat it with your veggies.

great idea, thanks! My girlfriend make hummus for me about 3 weeks ago and I'd forgotten how much I had missed it! I used to eat it quite frequently in the States but rarely, if ever since I moved here 5 years ago!
