No Meat Zone Recipes: Homemade Hummus

One of my favorite treats to eat year round is hummus. You can dip just about anything into it and it comes out tasting delicious. Here is one of my favorite recipes for hummus, which should make the perfect treat for spring and summer.

1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, chopped in half
1 pinch paprika
1 tsp fresh chopped parsley

Chop parsley into super small pieces (can use food processor for this). Then place all remaining ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth. Serve with broccoli, carrots, naan, pretzels or spread on a sandwich. I've found that you can also freeze hummus for a few months if you end up making a batch that's too large.
