Trying to figure out what to do with the cans of beans that are piling up in our pantry. I get a little sick of beans and rice, and trying to find a good recipe. Found a hummus recipe and ate it with crackers. It was simple, and good...and the best part, the kids LOVED it. I forgot I was going to add garlic to it, but it was good without. You could also eat it with raw veggies like carrots or celery, which you can get with your fruit and veggie vouchers.


1 can garbanzo beans/chickpeas*
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tablespoon lemon juice*
1 teaspoon cumin
garlic powder to taste (optional)

Raw veggies for dipping*, crackers, or pita bread

Reserving liquid, dump garbanzo beans in food processor. Add rest of ingredients and process until smooth, adding reserved liquid to desired consistency. Serve with pita bread, raw veggies or crackers.
