Hummus is great go-to snack and it is easy to make.
- 2 cups garbanzo beans soaked overnight (you can use a 15 ounce can chickpeas drained and rinsed)
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 cup Sun-dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup Tahini Paste
- Juice from 1 lemon, plus 5 drops of lemon essential oil
- 1 Tbsp tomato paste
- Pinch of Himalanyan sea salt
- Pinch of smoked paprika
- Pinch of cumin
- Ezekiel sprouted grain tortillas or other gluten free tortillas
- Cucumbers, celery, carrots rinsed and chopped
Place garbanzo beans, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, tahini, tomato paste, some salt and smoked paprika in a food processor or blender and process until well combined and smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. Add more oil, lemon juice or tomato paste if needed. Serve with a drizzle of oil and diced sun-dried tomatoes on the top.
Pre-heat broiler on low heat with the rack in the middle of the oven. Trim tortillas into wedge shapes. Place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and lightly spray with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt. Broil about 4-5 minutes until lightly browned and crispy. Sprinkle with some smoked paprika, or your favorite spices.
When tortillas are finished cooking, spread hummus on them, add veggies, wrap and enjoy!
