Eat Clean Hummus

I am always interested in clean eating recipes.  I love Tosca Reno’s books and cookbooks on clean eating.  I find her very inspirational having turned her health around at the age of 40.  Click here to find out more about Tosca Reno and her resources. Here are a couple of her recipes I’ve tried and what I thought:
Eat-Clean Hummus

This was a hit!  We already LOVE hummus at my house.  My fridge is never without hummus.  We love dipping pitta chips, tortilla chips, broccoli, peppers, mushrooms…you name it.  This was so easy to make and super cheap.  The most time consuming thing was squeezing the lemon juice from the lemons.  But, it really wasn’t a big deal.  The only thing that I had an issue with was finding tahini.  The store we went to didn’t have it.  I wanted hummus NOW (hehe) and did not have time to go to other stores.  So, we skipped the tahini and it did just fin.  Fabulous, really!  I will make it again, though, and use tahini just to compare.

Eat-Clean Hummus (recipe: pg. 137 of The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook)

4 cloves garlic
2 cups canned chickpeas, rinsed and well drained
1tsp sea salt
1/3 cup tahini
juice of 2 fresh lemons
1 tbsp fresh olive oil

Place all ingredients in food processor or blender.  Pulse for a few minutes until well combined but still coarse.  Adjust seasonings. Transfer to serving bowl and serve or cover with plastic wrap.  YUM!
