Healthy and Homemade

Memorial Day weekend is here and the food and drinks will be flowing.  Most of you will over-indulge – trust me, I’m including myself in that category.  But, for those of you who are going to be somewhat conscious of what you’re eating, here is a SUPER easy recipe for you to try out.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus



1 16 oz can drained garbanzo beans

1 4 0z jar roasted red peppers

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 tablespoon tahini

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon ground cumen

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley


In an electric blender or food processor, puree all ingredients.  Process them using long pulses, until the mixture is fairly light and slightly fluffy.  Make sure to scrape the mixture off the sides of the food processor or blender in between pulses.  Transfer to serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.Sprinkle the hummus with the chopped parsley before serving.

Sprinkle chopped parsley on top before serving.
