Homemade Hummus For Afternoon Snacking

Ever had hummus? They're wonderful as dips for healthy snacking. You can use any popular snacks to eat with hummus such as chips, bread, celeries, roasted asparagus, etc.

A few days ago, I made something simple for my friends. It consisted of sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and pita bread. Simple, yet amazing. The recipe for the hummus is below.

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 1 can of chick peas, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • water for consistency
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine tahini, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor until pasty. Then add chick peas and olive oil. Add water for consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Before serving, indent a well in the middle and pour olive oil. Garnish with cayenne pepper as final touch.

Enjoy your afternoon.

In my opinion, you can never have enough tomatoes in your diet. It's a rich source of beta carotene for keeping your skin healthy and avoiding acne. Taste delicious, too.
