Simple Homemade Hummus

I’ve been making this hummus dip for the past 2 weeks and my raw vegetable consumption has increased by 100% (from not ever eating any at all). 😛 So, I want to share this recipe with you and hopefully it will inspire you to eat more raw vegetables too. This has been the best on-the-go snack for me to prepare in advance. It stores very well in the fridge for upto 5-6 days.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 can of Chick Peas
  2. 2 cloves of Organic Garlic
  3. 1 tbsp of Olive Oil
  4. Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
  5. 3/4 tsp of Sea Salt
  6. 1/2 tsp of Ground Cumin
  7. 6-7 tbsp of Water

Step by Step:

Pre-soak the chick peas in warm water for about 5-10mins to loosen up the shells. You can skip this step but I think it’s worth the extra work for a smoother textured hummus.

Remove the shells by gently rubbing the chick peas between your fingers.
