With the Super Bowl right around the corner, it seems every food blog out there is featuring appetizers and snack foods. I thought I would stray from the norm and post something completely different...until I came across this hummus recipe. I am a sucker for hummus. It's packed with fiber and protein, so it's filling enough for a light lunch. And there are SOOO many variations, like this sweet version I posted a while back.
This really does taste a lot like pizza! And, I suppose you could add chunks of pepperoni or ham to make it even more pizza-like.
Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie
1 (14.5 oz) can White Beans or Garbanzo Beans, rinsed & drained
1/3 C. Nutritional Yeast Flakes (found in health food aisle)*
1 tsp. Dry Basil
1 tsp. Dry Oregano
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 C. + 2 Tbsp. Tomato Sauce
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree until fairly smooth. Serve at room temperature or chilled with assorted crackers, toasts, and raw veggies. Could also be used as a spread in a wrap or sandwich. Refrigerate any leftovers.
*Note about nutritional yeast: It can be found in the bulk section in the health food aisle and is inexpensive.
