Try my recipe for tasty, easy hummus!


Whirl up some fresh, healthy hummus for the kids after school or friends on the weekend! You'll be giving them a boost -- a diet rich in olive oil lowers blood sugar, and prevents diseases as diverse as atherosclerosis, inflammation, and bone loss.

GreenSmoothieGirl's Easy Hummushummusrecipe

  • ¼ c. tahini
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (or ½ t. garlic powder)
  • ½ t. Salt
  • ½ t. ground cumin
  • 1 (15 oz) can chick peas, drained (aka garbanzo beans)
  • 2 T water

In a food processor add all the ingredients and process until the mixture is creamy and thick. Add more liquid if needed. Sprinkle with paprika and olive oil before serving.
