… Delivering Fiber in a Delicious Package!
Beans are an easy way to include fiber and protein into your diet without adding extra unwanted calories, sugars, or fat. Hummus is one of my favorite go-to recipes for a quick lunch, afternoon snack, or a simple yet delicious appetizer. This hummus recipe pairs well with my Gluten Free, Dairy Free Potato Leek Soup for a nutritious and filling meal, or kick back with some gluten-free beer and crackers for a great football snack.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: None
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed well
2-3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 oz (jarred) chopped pimento, divided into 2 equal portions
1/2 large can pitted black olives, drained and divided into 2 equal portions
In a food processor, combine beans, olive oil, onion powder, pepper, one portion of pimento, and one portion of black olives and blend until smooth. Transfer hummus from food processor to bowl. Using your hand, crush remaining portion of olives into irregular pieces. Add these olive pieces and remaining pimento to hummus. Stir gently to distribute evenly. Serve with gluten-free crackers or pretzels, veggie sticks, or toast points.
