My favorite hummus

This recipe has a little of everything: It's sweet and spicy and has so many healthy ingredients -- healthy fats, garlic, legumes, citrus, and veggies. Yum!

My favorite hummus

1 can of garbanzo beans (15 ounces), rinsed and drained

2-1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons tahini

2 small carrots, chopped

2 cloves garlic, quartered

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon (about 1 large lemon's worth)

1/2 cup fire-roasted red pepper from a jar (in water, not oil)

liberal pinch of cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste

1.) Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and process until smooth.

2.) Serve with pita chips, chopped tomatoes, black olives, and carrot sticks. Or spread onto a sandwich with a slice of red onion, sliced cucumber, and sprouts.
