Hummus makes a healthy snack because the chickpeas are high in fiber, folic acid, a good source of iron, magnesium, copper and zinc. The lemon provides a good source of vitamin C and the olive oil is a source of healthy fat. Packed with good-for-you fats, hummus is a favorite go-to for quick, healthy snacks. I have had hummus a number of ways… both with and without tahini. I love it either way. This time I made it with out tahini.
1 can organic garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1/2 lemon juiced
2-4 cloves garlic
5-10 leafs basil
2-3 tbs olive oil
Salt, ground coriander, cumin, paprika
1 tbs tahini optional ( from Trader Joe's is the best)
I used almond butter instead of tahini, it worked out well
Enjoy with your favorite crackers!!!
