Guest Post: Food I Love//Jane

During the month of February you'll see some guests on Nova Granola talking about a food they love.

Guest: Jane (Jane and I met when I moved to Salt Lake City and we became instant friends. She was married a couple of years ago and soon after moved to Singapore!!! I love seeing her adventures in a foreign country. Jane is she an amazing cook* and a Pilates instructor, there is so much I'd love to learn from her. okay and she has a great name too)
I was completely shocked after my first grocery run here in Singapore. Hummus at $11.00 a tub! Are you kidding me?

I had no choice but to make my own.

This homemade delight has become a staple in our fridge. Every Sunday night, I 'religiously' whip out the ingredients and my food processor and Voila -- a fresh batch for the week.

My favorite part about this recipe -- SO HEALTHY. You really can't find a better snack...especially paired with carrots, bell peppers, crackers or pita bread.

Homemade Hummus
2 (15.5 oz) Cans of Garbanzo Beans or Chick Peas
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
3-4 Cloves of Garlic
1/4 tsp. Salt

Mix in food processor for 5-7 minutes on high.

-rich in fiber
-folic acid
-dense in protein
-healthy mono-unsaturated fat
-low calorie and filling

Next time, switch things up and add:
-pine nuts
-sun-dried tomatoes

>Thanks Jane! Hummus is so versatile and I love the idea of switching things up. Makes eating raw veggies a little more exciting.

*Jane and her sister's have a food blog called Boyer Try This which is full of delicious foods and I want to try everything.
