This is an easy delicious dip for adults and kids alike. A great source of protein and fibre in every bite. We actually have this on the LettuceLove Cafe‘s menu sometimes as it works well in Collard Wrap or a substation for mayo in our Kind Sandwich.
I’ve been using this recipe for years and it never fails to give me a healthy snack that I could easily make every day. The trick to eating better (try to do the best you can every day) is to have healthy things in your fridge and pantry at all times so that you won’t be tempted to indulge in processed, sugary, fatty, unhealthy foods.
Here’s how you get started:
Note: You will need a food processor for this recipe.
- 1 15oz can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed.
- 1/2 cup water-packed roasted red peppers (about 2 peppers)
- 2 tbsp organic tahini
- 3 tbsp organic olive oil
- 3 tbsp organic lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves (or more to taste)
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
- 1/8 tsp chili flakes
- 1 pinch of sea salt and 1 pinch of pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until completely smooth, about 2 minutes. Serve with Toasted Gluten Free pita or better yet, carve up some organic veggies and have them ready for when the kids get home!!
