"" Dream To Life: Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite dips, spreads, snacks.  I use it in sandwiches, on veggies, with pita bread.  And while it's readily available in the grocery store, I decided to try out making some from scratch.  Using this recipe, it was a quick and easy spread to make. And delicious!  I highly suggest you try it out.   Tahini is the essential ingredient.   And don't worry, it's easy to find in the international aisle at the market.  Tahini is used in a lot of Mediterranean dishes and is a paste made from ground sesame seeds.  In all our efforts to eat healthier, hummus is a great way to go (in lieu of mayo, ranch, or other less healthy dips and spreads).  It is rich in protein and fiber and helps lower blood cholesterol.  Win win!
