By now, you’ve probably heard of the health benefits of chickpeas. They are high in protein and provide fiber, manganese, and folate. They can also reduce your risk of heart disease and provide a non-animal source of protein! A great way to add more chickpeas into your diet is by making hummus!

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a hummus swoosh that your friends and family will love! With just a few ingredients, this tasty snack is sure to please! Simply, place dried chickpeas in a bowl and cover with water. Add baking soda, cover, and let sit for 8 to 12 hours. A good time to do this is before you go to bed. By the time you wake up, your chickpeas are ready for the next step.

Drain your chickpeas and cover them with cold water. Add fresh garlic, a dried red chile, and a bay leaf. Simmer for 35-45 minutes. In a food processor, add garlic, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Let this mixture sit for five minutes. Then add tahini, ice water, and olive oil. Blend. Add salt, cumin, and a little bit of your leftover cooking liquid. Blend again.

Next, swoosh a spoonful of your hummus onto a plate. Create a well in the middle using a spoon. Now, you can fill in this well with all sorts of tasty treats such as marinated tomatoes, green beans, olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, and the list goes on and on! Get creative and enjoy! There is nothing that you can put into the center that is wrong. Anything goes so don’t be afraid to try different, fresh items each and every time! Plus, this is a great conversation opener at any get together or event. Bon Appetit, everyone!
