So this happened for the first time ever in my life. I know, I know, some of you are thinking how the hell has this gal never made hummus until now?! Welp, I can’t really answer that. However, I can now say that I have made hummus from scratch. And that shit was goooood. I even made the chick peas from scratch. Fancy, I know. The first batch I made with fresh lemon juice. Then realized I had enough chickpeas left (but no lemon left) to make another batch to freeze. So I used doTERRA lemon essential oil and YUM. Like seriously, YUM. Definitely a different flavor as essential oils are more intense, yet equally delicious. I always seem to make do with what I have layin’ around ;)
Layers and layers of healthy goodness. You too can have this beautiful creation in a million different variations. I buy most of my dried goods from nuts.com and health food stores. And I like to mix up what I buy and try new things and then combine them all into my own random mix of trail. This one consists of: dried cranberries, raisins, dried pluots (plum/apricot hybrid), walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, tiger nuts (roots, not nuts), cacao nuts, banana chips, and roasted dried fava beans.
I do advise you to shake it up before eating … but then it doesn’t look as pretty as this. However, it tastes delicious and nutritious, and I suppose that’s what really matters ;)
