Oh, hummus?!

I thought I didn't like hummus. I had tried several brands and well I just didn't care for it. A co-worker told me use one can of chick peas and one can of white navy beans. Guys!! I had no idea on what goodness I was missing out on. And the best part? It was pretty healthy too! I've made this several times now and each time is yummy and flavorful. I really love that when you learn to make the basic of one recipe you can change it up to meet your own requirements. Just like the pesto I made previously, it's all about your own taste. Getting Big Boy J, (as he would like to be called now, he said no more baby :[  ) to eat his veggies has been quite the task lately. But, he loves to dip stuff so dipping fresh veggies into the hummus is so fun for him. This recipe is for Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
1 can chickpeas, juice too
1 can white navy beans
1 jar roasted red bell peppers, a little of the oil
2 cloves of garlic
About 1/4 cup garlic olive oil
Garlic to taste at end

Mix all up in nutribullet until desired consistency. Refrigerate to let flavors really set in. Serve with anything :)

Have a wonderful day, hopefully this Monday brings a good start to a new week for us all!
