Kidney Bean Hummus…Seriously

The 3pm slump gets me every time if I am at home…I begin to open my fridge and want to graze.  Last week I decided to whip up a quick snack that I wouldn’t regret eating with things I already had around the house (LOVE it when that happens).  This kidney bean hummus has a really great color, a kick of spice, and is loaded with fiber and protein.

  • Half of one jalepeno
  • 2T EVOO
  • 1T Cumin

  • S&P
  1. Place all ingredients in your food processor on high until desired consistently. I like mine a little chunkier. Scoop into a beautiful dish and enjoy with crudite or Mary's Gone Crackers. Boom, done!

Holy Hummus!

So I am a HUMMUS freak and always feel pretty good about choosing hummus with raw veggies or pita as a snack.  It’s protein packed, has a lot of fiber, is delicious and is pretty clean.  Well Food Babe has dashed by dreams!  Read about the scary facts and ingredients about store bought hummus here.  So today I looked over Food Babe’s homemade hummus recipe and decided to make my own version.

Blonde Lemon Hummus
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Snack
  • 2 cans of white beans (I used what I had and did not have organic, use organic when you can)
  • 1 can of chick peas
  • 2 lemons (roughly peeled, I added a little bit of the rind for nutrients and flavor)
  • LOTS of sea salt and pepper
  • 1 TSP Tahini
  • 1 TSP minced garlic or one garlic clove
  • 1 small bunch of parsley
  • 2 T Chives
  1. Blend in Vitamix or powerful blender. When you reach the texture you want, taste and add whatever else you think it's missing. Maybe more salt? Pepper? Throw in some cayenne? Enjoy with veggies, pita, as a sandwich spread, however you like!
