RecipesHummus is quick and easy to make, so why buy it when you can make it fresh in under 5 minutes.  I’m not a fan of canned food, but i make an exception for beans.  I always keep some organic chickpeas and kidney beans on hand for quick and easy meals. Why organic?  The non organic cans contain EDTA, a chemical preservative, where as the organic ones use citric acid

Ingredients:

1 can Organic chickpeas (save about 1/4 cup of the liquid)

1/2 cup water

3 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp Tahini (sesame seed butter)

1-2 gloves garlic

1 lemon, juiced

1 tsp salt

Rinse chickpeas well, but save some of the liquid

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth,  Use water to achieve desired consistency. Use as a spread or dip on your favourite crackers (Mary’s Wheat Free) or vegetables.
