Great too see all of the Healthy Kid Recipe Contest winners and their families enjoying the fun at Tuscawilla Park in Ocala today and great to see everyone enjoying the hummus and Sun chips. If you wish to try the hummus at home, here is the recipe. Check out my other recipe pages for good ideas also.
So easy to make, the store bought version can never compare to homemade hummus. Excellent for a fresh veggie dip- think celery, carrots, raw broccoli, you can also serve it with hunks of fresh bread or toasted pita chips and great with Sun Chips for a healthy after school or work snack.
2 cups garbanzo beans
2 lemons juiced
1 tablespoon garlic
1 tablespoon tahini (tahini was not used in the Tuscawilla Park food demo, so you can leave it out if you like)
Pinch of seasoning or rub
½ cup olive oil
Puree smooth in food processor.
At the end of the food demonstration, I added some sundried tomatoes (about 1/3 cup and 4 or five green pimento filled olives and blended for a further half minute before serving.)
Serve and enjoy!
