Hummus and Veggies

Hummus a wonderful snack filled with good nutrients. This is a snack that can help you encourage your children to eat the much needed 4-5 servings of veggies a day. Hummus is also a great appetizer to a healthy and tasty meal. There are many twists to the hummus recipe but the version I am sharing below is the basic one.

1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 clove of garlic (number of cloves is a taste preference)

Place all ingredient in a blend and mix until smooth. Serve with veggies of your choice. Options of veggies include carrot, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumber, or peppers.

Note: You can easily change up the recipe by adding other spices such as basil, oregano, parsley, Cajun spice or any other spice you enjoy.
