Hummus made simple and cheap

2 cans Garbanzo Beans AKA Chickpeas. Rinsed well!!!

Juice of about a half a Lemon or to your taste

a clove or more of Garlic finely minced or use the minced in the jar or the Garlic in a tube and really if push gets to shove use granulated or powder.Just be careful after it sits for a while it tends to get spicy.

a touch of Sesame Oil or about a spoonful of Tahini (Sesame paste). To taste.

Place all the ingredients into a Food-processor, a Blender or even use a Potato masher. Whatever works for you.

We all wanted something different for Dinner the other night. I wanted a Sweet Potato/Yam. My Guy wasn’t feeling good. So, he wanted Ramen (of course). My Kid found some packaged Crescent Rolls, Ham and Cheddar in the fridge.

image
This it he came up with. He rolled the package of Crescent Rolls out and split it into 2. Layered the Ham and Cheese. Rolled them up and baked to the Crescent Roll instructions. YUM

Since I didn’t make it to the Farmer’s Market this weekend. I am running out ofย  fresh produce. Which in a way is a good thing. Being able to use up everything just means more room for all the Yum I’ll find this weekend. I have tagged this as Vegetarian/Vegan to share the simple veg dish that could be turned into a balanced Vegetarian/Vegan dish with just a couple of additions.

wpid-20140914_185242.jpgBrowned the Veggies with Coconut Oil

 

I steamed the Potatoes, added a 1/2 Teaspoonish of Coconut Oil. Browned the Potatoes and added the Green Beans. Cooked with the lid on the pan til Green Beans were done. Added the Leftover Chicken and baked for a bit to warm the Chicken.Done!

To turn the Veg Dish into a terrific Vegetarian/Vegan dish. Just bump up the veggies. Add Mushrooms, Corn, Beans(Legumes), Tomatoes, anything that you love. It will work out great.

 

Til next time…….Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
