Hummus Recipe- NT

Hummus Recipe from Nourishing Traditions (Makes 2 cups)

2 cups basic chickpeas cooked
3 cloves garlic mashed
1 Tablespoon expeller-expressed flax oil
1/2 fresh lemon juice
salt to taste
pinch of cayenne pepper
(I add 1/2 cup of raw yogurt)

Place cooked chickpeas in food processor (least amount of liquid as possible).  Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth.  The hummus should be creamy and not too thick.  Add some cooking liquid if needs  thinning.  Serve with Pita Chips.

This is a favorite in our house.  My husband was raised on hummus and pita chips.  For him it is comfort food.  I am just glad that he enjoys healthy comfort food :)
