Don’t think of snack time as just a filler food to get you by until your next meal. Take this opportunity to get some good nutrition into your day. Instead of reaching for chips, cookies or a Snicker’s bar, make this delicious hummus recipe and keep it in your fridge for an easy go to snack or bring to work for a fabulous mid-day treat.
Hummus fan or not, this recipe is the bomb. Even my son, that does not like hummus enjoyed this. The flavors of “pizza” bring this spread into a whole new level of deliciousness. So enjoy this healthy snack with veggie sticks or baked pita chips; or slather it on a chicken wrap or make a vegetarian pita sandwich with hummus and veggies.

Pizza Hummus Recipe
2 cup cooked garbanzo beans
– Can is fine – just drain and save water for later if needed
¼ cup pizza sauce
– I make homemade but store bought is fine
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon of real sea salt or to taste
1 large clove of garlic
½ teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon dried oregano
Up to ¼ cup of water or water from garbanzos
Blend all ingredients in food processor or blender until smooth– I used my VitaMix. You may need to add water to thin out – anywhere from 1 TBS to ¼ cup. I used water from my cooked garbanzos. You can always adjust seasoning and spices to your liking.
Enjoy your healthy snacking! It will do your body a whole-lotta good.
