After saving up some money, we recently purchased a Vitamix blender. So far I love it! It is extremely easy to use and more importantly easy to clean. Another added benefit is the healthy, fresh food you can make with it. One of my favorite recipes so far is hummus. It goes perfectly with fresh cucumbers, peppers, or tortilla chips.
Here is my version of a hummus recipe:
15 oz. chickpeas (drained and washed)
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds
1 garlic clove, peeled
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more depending on taste)
1 teaspoon cumin
sprinkle of salt
Place all ingredients in Vitamix blender, blend for 60-90 seconds depending upon desired consistency. If you like a chunky hummus blend for less time. There is nothing like homemade hummus. Once you taste it you will never go back to store bought.
What is your favorite food to eat with hummus?
