Heart-throb

You know when you see those pre-teen girls at a One Direction concert crying their eyes out over the mere fact that they’re within a 100m radius of their favourite band?

That’s how we feel about hummus. Minus the crying.

Even just the word hummus gets us excited. Really, what’s not to love? A creamy dip/spread/topping that’s good for you, need we say more?

Hummus is a complete protein because of the chick peas + tahini combo, it’s high in fibre (yay chick peas!) and contains healthy fats from the olive oil and the tahini. The great part about making it yourself is that it’ll be lower in sodium.  It’s also incredibly delicious.  We think that should count as a health benefit, too. 🙂

We like to dip pita chips, crackers, veggies, spoons in hummus, spread it on sandwiches, wraps, and pizza, and put it on top of salads and whatever other dishes we think it would add to (…everything?).  Seriously, folks, we eat hummus like it’s our job- luckily this recipe only takes about 5 minutes to make!

So here is our very own hummus recipe, which is low in sodium and high in awesome! 🙂

1. Rinse your chickpeas!

2. Assemble the troops!

3. Put everything in the food processor….

4. Blend! Blend! Blend!

5. EAT.
