Feeling the munchies creep up on you? For the perfect snack to satisfy this craving, this light, yet filling delight will give you the energy kick and boost to your day. Hummus tartine provides fiber from the garbanzo beans; calcium from the tahini paste; friendly fats from the olives and olive oil. Personally, I am fond of using a sprouted grain bread for some whole grain goodness, but, if you prefer, you can switch to gluten-free bread for a completely GF option. The best part? It only takes about 2 minutes to make (for all of you who hate spending time in the kitchen).
1 15-ounce can organic chickpeas, rinsed and drained ( Note: keep the can water in a separate bowl to use in this recipe).
2 large cloves garlic ( less if you don’t like garlic).
4-5 Tbsp. tahini paste
Juice from one lemon
1/4 cup water + 4 tablespoon water from the garbanzo can
1/2 tsp. sea salt
For the top of the hummus:
1/2 teaspoon crushed cumin
Extra virgin Olive oil, to drizzle on top
1- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 slices of sprouted grain bread, or GF bread
1/4 cup black olives halved
6 cherry tomatoes
Drizzle of olive oil
Add sliced cucumbers and sprouts to the hummus tartine to give it more color and flavor
1. Blend all ingredients in your food processor or high speed blender for about 2 minutes.
(Add more water, one Tbsp. at a time, if a thinner texture is desired. Adjust seasonings according to taste).
2. Remove and arrange in small bowls, drizzle with olive oil, and garnish with cumin and chopped parsley. Serve and dig in.
1. Toast two slices of your bread, and spread a generous amount of hummus on your bread
