A few weeks ago I shared with you some of the great health benefits of beans and vowed to share some recipes with you. (Check it out here if you missed it!) Last week I posted a recipe for honey-roasted chick peas. Today I am sharing another way to enjoy chick peas as a healthy, delicious snack: hummus!
If you're not familiar with hummus, let me get you up to speed. It is a Middle Eastern dip made of mashed chick peas that is usually accompanied by olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini (sesame paste), and served with pita bread. And it is awesome! Add some roasted red peppers, and you have something really special on your hands! If you aren't a huge bean fan, hummus is a great way to trick yourself into adding beans into your diet.
