Peanut Butter Hummus…

I have a secret to tell you….I am not a big fan of raw carrots. Whenever I eat them, I make a really bad sour face and scare little children away lol. I know they are good for me so I am determined to include them in my diet.

I went online and starting to look for recipes for hummus so that I can pair it with the carrots and after looking and looking…I came up with

PEANUT BUTTER HUMMUS!

Ingredients

Can of Chickpeas

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt to taste

2 tbsps of Creamy peanut butter

Lemon Juice to taste

tbsp or more of Minced Garlic

I didn’t take exact measurements but I promise you, it is really easy to make.

First I drained the can of chickpeas (poured liquid in cup to use later)

I then combined the Chickpeas and minced Garlic in a bowl

And made it nice it creamy…I used some of the reserved liquid from the can to help me smooth it out…

I then added peanut butter, salt, lemon juice (I used two lemons…I like it zesty), and EVOO

and mixed it all up together…

I chilled it in the fridge for a couple of hours and then enjoyed it with baby carrots…

  2. I've actually found that organic carrots taste SUBSTANTIALLY better than non-organic. There's a farmer's market at Atlas on Saturdays that might have some!

    Love this hummus. You know how close PB and I are!

  5. Sounds amazing!! It's very similar to the dessert hummus that Evan blogged about a while ago, and that I finally made a couple months ago (it included chocolate chips too!). Sounds like the perfect snack (two veggies in one!)

  7. OK, I admit, I cringed at the title of this post. But upon further reflection, that recipe is just like a peanut dipping sauce, and that sounds awesome! I approve. :)
