Happy #MealPrepMonday everyone! Hummus is not only delicious but it is also healthy and can be used to meet your carb requirement in a GOLO meal. I went to buy some the other day and due to the recent recall that happened with one of the major name brands, I was unable to. So, I looked up a few recipes and made my own! It is really easy and there are many flavor combinations that you can do. In fact, a few of these don’t even have chickpeas in them! Take a look below and then get out your food processor…I promise, you’ll be glad you did!!
Directions: Rinse and drain the chickpeas (or other beans as listed below), then combine everything in a food processor and mix until smooth & creamy. For a thinner consistency, add 1 tablespoon water.
Classic: 1 can Chickpeas + ½ cup Tahini + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil + 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice + 1 Garlic clove
Southwestern: 1 can Black Beans + 1 Chipotle Pepper + 2 Tbsp Lime Juice + ¼ cup Cilantro + 1 Tbsp Cumin
Italian: 1 can Cannellini Beans + ¼ cup Sundried Tomatoes + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil + 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice + 1 tsp Oregano, dried
Greek: 1 can Chickpeas + ½ cup Feta Cheese + 1 cup Spinach + 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice + 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
Beet: 1 ¾ cup Cooked Beets, cubed + 1/3 cup Tahini + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil + 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice + 1 Garlic clove
Edamame: 1 ¾ cup Shelled Edamame, cooked + 1/3 cup Tahini + 2 Tbsp Olive Oil + 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice + 1 Garlic clove
Ranch: 1 can Chickpeas + 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt, plain + 1 tsp Parsley, dried + ½ tsp Garlic Salt + 1 tsp Dill, dried
