Anyone that knows me is aware of my love of nachos. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. One of the girls at work was saying that she has been making a healthier snack of the week and one of the snacks she made was hummus. I’ve always liked hummus, so I thought I’d try making some myself as a substitute for nachos. I am NOT a cook, so I was a little nervous about making this, but it really is a matter of throwing everything in a blender and pushing start. It was SO easy! I recommend this as a healthier alternative to chips and cheese!
2 cans of chick peas (19 oz.) 90% drained
Juice of 1 lemon
7 Roasted garlic cloves plus 1 fresh clove of garlic
7.5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp tahini paste
1 tsp salt or garlic salt
**Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
It makes A LOT, so be prepared to feed an army!
