Hummus Recipe

I started out the year by making my own Hummus, I have been meaning to for months. I had the day off so I read several recipes and mixed them together to make some of my own Hummus. I always read several recipes and take what sounds good from each one to make what I want. Here is the recipe for the Hummus I made.

 

Ingredients:

1 can of Garbonzo beans – rinse the beans and keep the liquid from the can

1 whole lemon

Olive Oil

Ground Cumin

Garlic

Salt

Pepper

Optional Ingredients:

Paprika

Red Pepper Flakes

  1. Put the Garbanzo beans, juice of lemon, 2 Table Spoons Olive Oil, 1 Table Spoon Ground Cumin, Garlic, Salt & Pepper to taste into your food processor or blender.
  2. Blend until you get the smooth texture you desire, add in the liquid from the Garbonzo Beans as needed to get your desired consistency.
  3. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for 3 weeks.

This is the base of the hummus you can enjoy as is or add anything for different flavors such as sun dried tomatoes.

Enjoy on sandwiches, veggies, as a dip, whatever you like!

Banana Ice Cream

I have the biggest sweet tooth and I have seen so many people making ice cream out of bananas. I had to try it. Here is what I did.

Freeze 4-5 Bananas (Tip peel bananas before you freeze them)

After they are frozen, cut them into slices and place them in the food processor

Add cinnamon & vanilla to taste

Blend, longer than you think, it will start to get flaky but don’t give up just keep going it will become an ice cream texture before you know it.

Put it in a bowl and keep in the freezer, you can fold in anything you want such as strawberries, chocolate chips or even add in peanut butter in the blending process. Be creative.

It is so yummy, I was impressed that it felt like ice cream. It is so refreshing and bright, I will have this in my freeze all summer for sure.
