I love hummus! So creamy and yummy. I love it drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with smoked paprika! It is a perfect match with the quinoa tabbouleh. These recipes are adapted from The Whole Foods Market Cookbook, and The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook.


3 cups cooked garbonzo beans

1/2 cup tahini

1 Tbsp roasted sesame oil

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cumin

juice from 2 lemons

1 clove garlic, minced

2-3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

pinch of cayenne

Toss everything into the food processor and blend until smooth and creamy! Yum!

Quinoa Tabbouleh

1 cup quinoa

2 cups water

1 cup parsley, chopped

1 pint grape/cherry tomatoes, cut in half

 juice of 1 lemon

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 small cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp mint, minced

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Place quinoa, water, and salt in saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until tender and all the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let cool slightly.

In a large bowl mix the rest of the ingredients, then stir in the quinoa. Very simple.

I typically serve this dish with lots of veggies.
