Healthy Alternative Dips


Hummus

1 15 oz. can of garbanzo beans/chick peas, drained
3 T. tahini
1/4-1/2 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1/8 t. cumin
1/2 t. sea salt
finely chopped parsley, garnish
olive oil
summac and paprika for garnish

Process all of the ingredients, except for tablespoon of the garbanzo beans, the parsley, olive oil and summac, in a food processor and add water to just below the level of the garbanzos.  Process, adding additional water as necessary, to form a smooth, thick paste.  Garnish the edge of a serving dish with the parsley.  Place the hummus in the middle of the dish.  Mound the reserved garbanzo beans in the center of the hummus with a few leaves of parsley.  Arabic custom is to pour a small amount of olive oil over the top as well as a sprinkling of summac.


Middle Eastern Garlic Spread

10-15 cloves garlic
1 cup oil (I use 1/4 to 1/3 olive and rest veg oil)
1 tsp salt ( more or less to taste)
2 TSP lemon juice
Dash Cayenne pepper

In a food processor, add the garlic, salt, lemon, and cayenne. Chop - but it doesn't have to be fine.

After the garlic mixture is chopped, begin to add the oil VERY SLOWLY, while processing, a little at a time until you use it all. Olive oil is great to use because of the flavor, but does not whip as well as veg oil so I use 1/4 to 1/3 olive oil and the rest veg oil.

By the time you are finished, it will look like a nice, thick mayo, and the taste is GREAT!!!

Once you have done it a couple of times, you will know how to adjust the amounts of the ingredients to suit your taste. It is used in any type vegie, bread or meat dishes as a dip (like ketchup), even as a baste when I am BBQ'ing!
