I don’t know about you guys, but when its real hot out, I’m not in the mood for a huge meal that is gonna make me feel even more sluggish than the scalding temperatures already does. I want something light, maybe crispy, certainly cold and often times utensil free.
Eating with my hands means less dish washing and its more acceptable for me to lick my fingers in the process.
I know ya’ll understand how great that is.
Summed up, summertime is a time for snacks. But chips leave little more than cheese powder on your fingertips and cellulite on the back of your thighs. No thanks.
I want a snack I can come back to throughout the day.
Wait, isn’t that quintessentially a snack is? Oh nevermind, you get the point.
So what is the best gosh darn snack? HUMMUS
Not just plain hummus (delicious as that may be), but sun dried tomato hummus.
Remember when I made RAW Hummus? Well, the basic recipe is pretty much the same.
What you’ll need:
2 cans ckickpeas (garbanzo beans)
Liquid from 1 can of beans
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup of sun dried tomato oil OR just 1/2 cup of olive oil
1/3 cup sun dried tomato, minced (or put through a food processor)
3 cloves garlic
What to do with it:
Here’s where it get’s real tricky
1. Put everything in a food processor or blender
2. Turn on
I know, this is a super complicated recipe, I apologize.
