Zesty garlic hummus dip is made with creamy garbanzo beans, garlic, lemon, and a kick of cayenne pepper. It makes a great healthy snack or party dip.
I like a Sunday with no plans. We went out for breakfast (not really worth the long wait), did a little grocery shopping, and got home in time for The Husband to watch the Louisville basketball game.
I knew that the moment we were home and I was settled in to my super comfy chair that someone would suddenly be “starving and soooo thirsty”.
Trying to avert their particular hunger crisis of the moment, I made this simple zesty garlic hummus dip.
I put the dip on the counter with a bowl of pita crisps, baby carrots, and celery sticks. That way they could graze and be set until dinner time, and I knew they wouldn’t be eating junk.
Hummus is a healthy and versatile dip. Some may even call it a condiment. I like it on turkey burgers and veggie wraps. My kids like to take it in their lunch as a tasty addition to vegetable sticks and little turkey rolls. One nice thing about hummus is that you can tailor it to your individual tastes. Whether spicy, tangy, tart or savory, you have a lot of room to play with the ingredients.
Today I used what I had on hand in my refrigerator. This is a basic recipe that I use to build on.
I used my little 4-cup Cuisinart food processor to make this zesty garlic hummus dip. If you don’t have a food processor, you can probably use a blender. The ideal tool would be a standard 8 cup (or larger) food processor like this one, but sadly, I don’t have one of those. ????
Here’s the recipe for the zesty garlic hummus dip. Enjoy!
