I love hummus.  From the middle east, this simple recipe supplies all the essential amino acids needed to help build proteins.  It is a great and easy recipe - and something that is pretty tasty.


2 cans of chickpease (12 oz each) -- now you can get regular chick peas and go through the sorting and straining- but let someone else do it for you

1/2 cup tahini

1/2 tsp salt

2 cloves of garlic

1 lemon

Oilve oil

Sun dried tomatoes

 In a blender or food processor place the chickpease, salt, garlic, tahini and squeeze in the juice from a lemon.  Blend until you like the texture. Top with some sun dried tomatoes and drizzle olive oil (my wife likes to drizzle some truffle infused olive oil).


If the mix is too thick - add an ice cube

You can add more olive oil on top
