In recent years I’ve started to like Hummus. I don’t know why I didn’t like it either.
In a week I’ll be starting the body fat weight loss challenge at my gym and hummus is healthy for you. Especially when it’s homemade because then you don’t have all those weird ingredients and preservatives.
Ingredients: 1/2 cup sesame seeds, 2 Tbsp canola oil (or sunflower seed oil), 1 small can of chickpeas (drained and rinsed), 3 Tbsp minced garlic, 1 tsp cayenne, 1/4 cup lime juice, 2 Tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp paprika, and salt and pepper to taste.
First heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Bake the sesame seeds for about 10 minutes, stirring every 5. Once done, place in a blender or food processor and blend with the oil.
Add all the other ingredients and blend till smooth. If you have too add more lime juice or oil to the mix (little by little though).
This hummas is great! It’s healthy, tastes amazing, and a great dip for veggies or an awesome sandwich spread.
