Cast your vote for 5 minute hummus recipe

Great as a dip, spread, or meal starter!

Getting your children to eat healthy is no easy task but for this mom, it is a priority. Over time, I have found recipes that they enjoy and are so easy to make....this hummus dip is certainly one of them!

The main ingredient in hummus is garbanzo beans. Garbanzo beans are well known for their fiber content, their digestive support, and even for craving reduction!

This recipe can be made in only 5 minutes by using canned garbanzo beans! Let's face it, not everyone has a handy supply of tahini paste so feel free to substitute peanut butter.

You can jazz this recipe adding any of the following:

  • 1/4 cup of jalepenos
  • 3 tablespoons of horseradish (my favorite--not the kids though)
  • 1/4 cup of red peppers
  • Anything you like can easily be added!

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: About 2 cups!

You already bought the beans...so try them toasted for a quick and easy snack!
