Lemon Garlic Hummos

Hummos is the easiest thing in the world to make. I don't even use a recipe. Start with good tahini. I use about a 1/4 of a cup.

Juice two lemons.

Juice your lemons into a strainer. So much easier than getting the seeds out afterwards.

Use three or four raw cloves of garlic.

Zest one lemon, add about three cups of chick peas to a Cuisinart with your garlic and lemon juice.

Then add olive oil until your hummos starts to look like hummos. Start with a cup and see how it tastes. Add a tablespoon of Celtic salt.

Add a dash of olive oil to you hummos and enjoy.

Having healthy snacks to eat this past week was imperative to my survival. I even brought my own hummos to a meeting last Monday. It was easy to stay on my whole foods way of eating. I have so many photos to share from the last few weeks. Bare with me. I'm needing some extra time to recover and sitting in front of a computer is not tempting me at all. The events did go so well. I've never been more satisfied from such hard work.

I'm so glad that your hard work felt good. Looking forward to see your photos. Have never done Hummos but I think I'm gonna give it a chance.
