I have a simple post for today, in honor of the simplicity of it's purpose..
A simple yet savory and satisfying delight.
(makes about 1 3/4 cups)
1 (15oz) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons dry roasted sunflower seeds*
2-3 cloves fresh garlic
1/2 medium white onion
4 tablespoons water
Optional: anything that sounds good from your spices collection;)
Potentially great, and therefore optional as well: spinach, artichokes, mushrooms, tomato...any other thing that may go nicely in hummus...
1) Add all ingredients into a food processor or strong blender
2) Blend together until completely combined
3) Serve with veggie sticks, toasted pita bread, or yummy chips:) (Or if you're crazy like me, then try it with popcorn! Or..even crazier... first, mix the hummus with peanut butter and mustard! :P )
*I used sunflower seeds because that's what we had in the pantry. For a more authentic flavor, use sesame seeds. (Although I have not gotten to yet, and therefore cannot vouch for the results!)
Ciao for now:)
