Roasted garlic omega 3 hummus


I have  a major addiction to hummus this summer so instead of buying the store bought hummus I have been making my own. It’s really easy to make and there are so many things you can do with it: put it in sandwiches,wraps, salads, dip for veggies or crackers, and straight from the spoon:)

Roasted garlic omega 3 hummus

1 can garbanzo beans drained

2-3 cloves of garlic roasted in olive oil

juice of 1 medium lemon

1/2 cup ground sesame seeds

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons flax oil

pinch of paprika

pinch of cumin

pinch of sea salt

* Roasted the garlic in olive oil until the edges are dark brown.

* puree all the ingredients in the blender or processor until smooth and serve.

* You can also top it with a drizzle of olive oil and some additional chopped roasted garlic.

* This makes a few days worth for the kids and I.

Lentil hummus


We had a great easter with family. We didn’t catch any easter egg hunts this year but we still had fun visiting friends in Oregon and family in Vancouver,WA. My son thinks that the easter bunny is a big Australian rabbit that hits people with a boomerang(from the guardian kids movie). He even told his 3 year old sister that the easter bunny was going to hit her with a boomerang! Lovely! I am posting my recipe for lentil hummus today. I ran at of garbanzo beans one time and tried lentils for my hummus. I was surprised that it actually tasted really good.

This is something that is light and healthy that I can throw together quick when there is starving kids to feed 🙂 The tortillas I use are sprouted and organic but I am not sure they are non GMO. I would like to find a non GMO corn tortilla so I am not feeding my kids frankenfoods.

Corn tortilla

1 Tbs. hummus ( I will post my easy hummus recipe soon)

1 Tbs shredded carrots

Handful of fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup chopped english or pickle cucumber

2 tsp. italian herbs

pinch of tumeric (optional)

Feta cheese (optional)

Warm the tortilla then spread on the hummus. Sprinkle the italian herbs on the hummus.  Put on the shredded carrots, cucumbers, and basil.
