Hummus and Toasted Pita Wedges

Hummus is a real power snack..it's packed full of whole proteins because of the chickpeas and it comes together in only a few minutes in your kitchen. We are a BIG fan of dips in this house and luckily we managed to perfect this recipe in one weekend of experimentations. This dip is awesome served with toasted pita wedges.


  • 1 can (2 cups) chickpeas, drained
  • 2/3 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 gloves garlic, mashed
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • Parsley (for garnish)
  • Olive Oil

1. Add chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cumin to a food processor. Mix until smooth. If your hummus is a little thick add some olive oil and mix again.

2. Add a little fresh parsley and a sprinkling of cumin to the top of hummus before serving.

Toasted Pita Wedges

  • 4 Pitas
  • Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Cut pitas into triangular slices. Brush both sides of all pieces with olive oil and place on a large cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake 8 minutes.

3. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Arrange on a plate next to the dip of your choice and ENJOY!!
