Super-Easy Hummus

I've been looking for healthy snacking ideas lately, since my body needs to eat small amounts more often during breastfeeding. I found a hummus recipe and have tweaked it to make pretty good hummus—especially for how easy it is to make! Here's my tweaked recipe:

  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained, liquid reserved
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sesame seeds to taste
In a blender or food processor combine all ingredients. Blend on low speed, gradually adding reserved bean liquid, until desired consistency is achieved.

I've been eating it with sugar snap peas. Yum!

This will be a great addition to my other snacks, which currently include yogurt, fruit, string cheese, granola bars, and trail mix.

What are some of your favorite healthy snacks?
