How's everyone's new years resolutions going? If you're like me and you maybe need a little help making healthier eating more palatable...read on.
I'm switching to the night shift once again, so what better way to make myself stay awake than cooking a whole bunch of stuff while watching movies? How about NOT cooking stuff while watching movies?
Because you don't even have to cook hummus...get it? Lame, I know. You know what's not lame?
Seriously though, if you have food processor, whipping this stuff up couldn't be easier. Whenever I think of hummus usually I think of dipping pita bread in it. And fair enough, that is awesome. But the best part is that this stuff is crazy good with veggies.
It makes eating veggies for a snack way super easy without having to resort to any heavy dips. I like to dip carrots, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, or peppers. Bonus, protein...so it fills you up!
Okay okay I know...enough health-talk garbage.
This hummus is a perfect base, it's great plain of course, but could easily be jazzed up with some extra garlic or roasted red pepper blended in.
