A New View of Healthy Eating: Experience Nutrition Super Simple Organic Hummus

I actually make hummus almost every week, so it is not a surprise to me that I’m sharing a simple, amazing hummus recipe with you. During my classes, I first teach how to prepare a basic hummus and then encourage the students to be creative with their hummus.  About a week ago, a few of my students made an amazing cilantro hummus, which inspired today’s lemon basil parsley lemon hummus.

Simple ingredients: Garbanzo beans, tahini, sesame seeds, lemon, garlic, parsley, lemon basil, sea salt.

Place all ingredients into food processor and blend until smooth.

Have fun mindfully plating your hummus…
