Hummus and Baked Chickpeas- healthy snacks

I’ve been making hummus for years. It’s healthy, great for snacking on with some Triscuits or some veggies to dip in it, and it’s easy.

Hummus

1/2 bag of Chickpeas (aka Garbanzo beans)

lemon juice

minced garlic

2 Tbsp tahini (found in your local grocery store: it’s sesame paste)

seasonings to taste (try different ones)

Soak chickpeas overnight, throw in the crock pot on high for 8 hours. Throw all ingredients in a blender. Add enough lemon juice to liquify it.

Also try it with spinach, roasted red peppers or artichoke hearts.

 

I got this idea from Pinterest

Oven roasted Chickpeas

If you want a good crunchy snack, soak and cook the other half of the bag of chickpeas as well. Toss in 2 Tbsp olive oil and any seasonings. Put the oven on 400, bake for 30 minutes.
