Anyway, I know this is not a fancy hummus recipe. It's just your run of the mill, basic hummus. BUT, I added some extra garlic, called it a dip, grabbed some crackers and let the kids have at it. They both loved it! haha - score one for mom!
Garlicy Hummus "Dip"
2 cans garbanzo beans, drained
juice of one lemon
4 tbsp tahini
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
ground pepper to taste
Place beans in blender and puree. Add lemon juice, garlic, tahini and salt. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with olive oil and ground pepper. That's it. So easy that I cannot believe I didn't do this before. I was actually BUYING hummus! At the STORE! Gasp! Sorry Trader Joe's, one less item in my cart from here on out (although I really love their 3 layer hummus so I'll have to make it an occasional purchase).
The kids were having so much fun that they decided to do a little impromptu photoshoot for Kashi 7 grain crackers - we LOVE them!
What have you been purchasing at the store that you realized was super easy to make at home?
