Hummus is seriously one of my favorite things to make. It takes approximately 2.73 minutes… okay maybe 2.8 minutes if you take your time opening the can of garbanzo beans… and its a delicious and healthy snack. Typically I make hummus once a week and throw it together with some celery sticks, baby carrots or a few pita chips and call it a day! You can really throw in any mixture of ingredients; spinach, feta, sun dried tomatoes, chipotle peppers… whatever you feel the need for!
**Simple and Sassy Tip** When you have a little leftover hummus – use it as a spread on a sandwich or bagel to make your meal that much more special and delicious. My all time favorite hummus sandwich is a combination of whole wheat bread, hummus, cucumbers, sprouts, shredded chicken, havarti cheese and a sprinkle of salt and pepper = perfection!
