Another week of meal prep is under my belt and I am really loving it! Last night I made hummus, like I have been each week but I tweaked a few things and decided to add some sun-dried tomatoes as well. It really kicked the flavor up and I think it is my new favorite! Hummus is so simple to make and I love that I can use organic ingredients and not worry about all the added preservatives. Here’s what I did:
1 box organic Garbanzo beans (or can) 15-16oz
4 or 5 sundried tomatoes
1 large clove of garlic
1/4-1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I use organic)
1-2 TBSP Lemon juice (I squeeze half a lemon)
a pinch of sea salt
Drain and rinse Garbanzo beans
Using kitchen scissors, cut tomatoes into small pieces
Put beans, tomatoes and oil into food processor.
Grate garlic into processor
add lemon juice and salt
Blend/chop until desired smoothness. (I usually add more oil as needed)
That’s it! As part of my meal prep I then divide it into small containers for a quick snack with veggies at work. The rest I keep in the fridge to spread on sandwiches, or dip at home.
I have also used this recipe without the tomatoes if they aren’t your thing.
