A couple recipes

Hummus

I think hummus is one of the best spreads/dips to accompany our crackers and sticks. Emerald Valley Kitchen makes a variety of tasty organic hummus and dips. Trader Joe’s also carries a good organic hummus. Or if you want to make your own, here’s an easy and delicious recipe:

2 C cooked organic garbanzo beans (chickpeas) or use 2 cans of organic garbanzo beans, drained
1 garlic clove (or more to taste) minced
1/3 C tahini (sesame paste)
1/4 C fresh squeezed lemon juice (I prefer Meyer lemons)
1/4 C olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
