The little things are everything.
My day can be turned around for the better by just one little thing – from remembering to eat, or shower, to enjoying a fresh cup of coffee (that hasn’t been re-heated multiple times), a squeeze from one of my loves, or a project being finished without a hitch.
When I’m not running around after the kids, cooking or cleaning, I’m generally in my office crafting or working at my computer. The day tends to get away from me quite quickly and I often forget the little things like eating. So one thing that makes me happy when I’m working alone (when I remember) is enjoying a snack that I can nibble at without having to pause what I’m doing. Hummus is definitely a favorite. With that said, I want to share my recipe for one of my favorite little things.
- 16 oz can garbanzo beans (drained with 1/4 cup liquid reserved)
- 1 lemon (squeezed)
- 2 tsp chopped garlic
- 2 tbs tahini
- 1/4 cup water
- pinch of salt
- Olivari Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (garnish)
- 1 tbs parsley (chopped)
Blend the liquid from the garbanzo beans, lemon, tahini and water until smooth.
Add the chopped garlic and salt, and blend until combined. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the blender.
Add the garbanzo beans and continue to blend until the hummus is thick and smooth.
Transfer to a bowl and garnish with a little Olivari Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and parsley.
Enjoy with vegetables, toasted pita bread, or pita chips.
