Homemade Hummus

One of my husband's favorite snacks is hummus. I like it a lot too. The only problem is it seems so expensive for just a little tub.

A couple of years ago I started making my own. It's so easy it stupid.

You just need a few ingredients and a food processor.

Tahini is on the list of ingredients. It's a sesame paste and comes in a tall, glass jar. It can be kind of expensive but it makes a TON of hummus and will pay for itself. I use this recipe.

We like it with vegetables: carrot sticks, cucumber, onion and sliced peppers. I also like it with wheat crackers or tortilla chips but obviously it's much healthier with veggies.

Another option on hummus is black bean hummus. I use the same recipe but instead of 2 can of chickpeas I use two cans of black beans. It's a pretty good alternative and reminds me of a snack we had in Jamaica...

And, just because it's Friday I'm leaving you with two sweet pics: my sweet p and some chocolate chip cookies.
