Snack Attack: Make Your Own Hummus

You can buy hummus just about anywhere these days, but nothing compares to the taste when it's freshly made. And it's really easy to make — the hardest part is buying all of the ingredients.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 can of garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • 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

Place all of the ingredients in a blender for a few minutes, or until the mixture is creamy and smooth.

Serve in a bowl with fresh vegetables and sliced pita bread. Or even better, try it with homemade pita chips. This would also be a great snack to have while watching the Super Bowl.

Fit's Tips: This is a basic recipe, so play around with it - add your own special ingredients like grated carrots or artichoke hearts.
