Hummus (Twyla's/Vegan)

makes about 2 cups

Juice from one lemon
3 T. Tahini (or try substituting peanut butter)
2 garlic cloves minced
1 15. oz. can of chickpeas- drain but reserve liquid
1 T. finely chopped parsley

1/4 tsp each of:
cumin
paprika
salt

Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend, adding liquid from the chickpeas as needed to achieve desired consistency.

Hummus is good chunky or smooth. Experiment with different seasonings, can also add chopped scallions, roasted red pepper, etc. (Use as dip for veggies, chips, sandwich spread...I'm going to spread it on a tortilla and add lots of roasted veggies. ::snort:: ) My guess is 1/2 Cup = 100 calories (chick peas).

Yum! I like hummus.

Changing subject: I really like the photo of Anastacia blowing the dandelion seeds! Is Joy her middle name?
