Hummus

This morning I started with my easiest hummus recipe. I rarely use mayonnaise anymore instead I like hummus on my sandwich. It's also great on flat bread, tortillas, wraps, veggies and organic chips. It's yummy and healthy!

Ingredients:
1 15 oz can of garbanzo (chickpeas) beans - reserve liquid (I use about 1/4 cup)
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt (or whatever salt you prefer)
1 T olive oil
1/4 c black olives (you can use any kind of olives or leave them out if you want)

In a blender or food processor combine all ingredients until consistency is fairly smooth. Store in refrigerator. 

* You can also use the dried beans but it takes longer since you have to soak them, directions are on the package.  If you choose that method, use about 2 cups of beans and use water for your liquid.

This is also gluten free. Served below with gluten free olive chips. Enjoy!

Love and peace,
Tammi
