We are all in that “get back on track mode”. Holidays are over, our daily routines are in full swing, and we are trying to get our healthy eating habits on point. Having some time off has helped me refocus and come into the new year killing it. I’m not the one for resolutions usually, but there’s nothing wrong with a little self-improvement.
How to make hummus?
The main ingredients in hummus are chickpeas and tahini (sesame seed paste). With the addition of lemon juice, olive oil, and seasonings, this classic hummus dip recipe is born. Roasted red peppers are blended with the original hummus recipe and it is delicious. Red peppers aren’t just for taste though. Did you know red peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges? Crazy right?! Reap the good health benefits of these superfoods while feeding that midday hunger.
Tip: You can add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend; however, if you blend the tahini paste first THEN add the chickpeas, it makes for a creamier hummus recipe!
