5 minute hummus

Serve with crackers, veggies, or try my homemade tortilla recipe for a great dip-able flat bread!5 minute hummus recipe

Great as a dip, spread, or meal starter!

Getting your children to eat healthy is no easy task but for this mom, it is a priority. Over time, I have found recipes that they enjoy and are so easy to make....this hummus dip is certainly one of them!
The main ingredient in hummus is garbanzo beans. Garbanzo beans are well known for their fiber content, their digestive support, and even for craving reduction!
This recipe can be made in only 5 minutes by using canned garbanzo beans! Let's face it, not everyone has a handy supply of tahini paste so feel free to substitute peanut butter.
You can jazz this recipe adding any of the following:
  • 1/4 cup of jalepenos
  • 3 tablespoons of horseradish (my favorite--not the kids though)
  • 1/4 cup of red peppers
  • Anything you like can easily be added!

I've yet to make my own hummus. This sounds easy enough!

Oh, how I love to make hummus. It's perfect for parties and every day. My favorite part is just how easy it is to make. I do keep tahini in my house because I make it so often. I like to add a little salt to mine as well. It really seems to bring out the flavors. It's even better the next day, but I rarely have it last that long.
