The Super Bowl seems to be a lot about snacking, and it's easy to eat mindlessly when there are munchables right in front of you. So if you're throwing a Super Bowl party or attending someone else's, forget the cheesy nachos, buttery popcorn, and creamy veggie dips. Make some homemade hummus instead. It is so simple to make yourself and fresh veggies go so well with hummus.

What you need:
1 can of garbanzo beans (strained and rinsed)
2 cloves of garlic, minced (you can always use more)
1 - 2 tbsp tahini (it's made out of ground up sesame seeds)
Juice from 1/3 of a lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
- Place all of the ingredients in a food processor for a few minutes, or until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
- Serve in a bowl with fresh veggies (carrots, red peppers and cucumbers are my fave), sliced pita bread, corn chips or whatever else you like to dip. You can also make these homemade pita chips and add those to your hummus platter.
