Hello, my name is Crystal and I’m a snack-aholic.

Looking back on my posts I’ve realized that I am a snack-aholic.  It seems like all I post are yummy vegan snacks or treats.  I swear I do eat actual meals {shocking I know}.  Since I have most of my fun in the kitchen when the little one is napping it’s usually snack time – not lunch time or dinner time.  Here’s another one of my yummy snacky creations:

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Hummus

1 can of garbanzo beans

1 Tbsp tahini

1 tsp sesame oil

1 Tbsp olive oil

3/4 cup roasted red peppers

2 drops doTERRA basil oil

pinch of salt

Sriracha hot sauce to taste {I like it HOT}

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and whizz.  Wah la!

I ate half of this myself with raw broccoli in one sitting – ok, it was my lunch that day.  I also had some with my homemade kale crackers.  Yum!

What do you like the pair your hummus with?

Herbed Green Hummus

Green is my favorite color…when it comes to food.  I add greens to almost anything…why not pack in some extra nutrients here and there, right?! Using organic greens is key see what produce you should also buy organic here.

Place all ingredients in food processor and whizz!  Easy peasy!

Personally I love dipping broccoli and cauliflower in hummus…bell peppers are also delish too!  Oh, also I love adding a few spoonfuls to my salads.  Yummmy!

(You easily make this recipe raw by using sprouts chickpeas instead.)
