Homemade Hummus

What’s not to love about hummus? It tastes amazing and is totally good for you with tons of fiber (garbanzo beans), fat burning lignans (tahini) and omega-3s (extra virgin olive oil). I just wanted to pass along a simple hummus recipe that I got from a coworker so you can make your own!


  • 1 can (15oz) garbanzo beans
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Cumin, salt, and pepper to meet your tastes

Blend it all up in a food processor until it is a paste and enjoy with pita bread. You can add tomatoes or red peppers to try different flavors of hummus, experiment and have fun with it!
