Gluten Free Hummus

Many times when I have a family gathering or friends come over for a visit I make this super easy and simple Gluten Free Hummus Dip. It literally takes me less than 10 minutes to place everything in a food processor or blender and whip up a good tasting homemade hummus. If you never made hummus at home this is a good recipe to try because is so good tasting you will not want to buy store hummus again. This recipe makes a creamy spread dip from a can of chickpeas garbanzo beans which is an excellent source of plant based protein, and fiber. Did you know that chickpeas are packed with magnesium, potassium and iron. This recipe combines the benefits of chickpeas with olive oil, tahini (a sesame seed paste) lemon juice, cumin, and paprika. I sometimes like to add onions, garlic, or jalapeño, to change the flavor and to spice it up a bit. You can even change more by using cilantro, red pepper or parsley to modify color and flavor. These are just a few ideas to to try and make it fun and different the always making it the same.
I love using this Gluten Free Hummus dip in my pita bread, chips, vegetables and even as a sandwich spread. Its rich in nutrients, creamy and healthy making a great substitute for mayo or any other condiments. Its a great snacks or dip where you can have it anytime of the day, I always make sure to have some in my fridge. You can enjoy this recipe in so many different ways and store it in a airtight container for a couple weeks in the refrigerator. Make it ahead and serve as a starter for your next party. This will be a healthier option for dip providing you and your guests with protein, a number of essential vitamin and minerals, and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. I love how hummus helps me fight hunger cravings  and balance blood sugar level I’ve become completely obsessed and need to have it daily it is so good.
