Kyle & I went to our favorite healthy, casual restaurant, Greens & Grille on Saturday night. They are known for fabulous, fresh salads. I had a salmon salad with caramelized onions, peas, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, and blue cheese.
I'd asked the cashier if they made their hummus in house and she said that they did. At first I was bummed, because I couldn't just go buy it. However, it ignited the adventurer within me and I decided to finally make my own homemade hummus.
Eat Clean Diet" book. The only change I made was to add more lemon juice and lemon zest.
It's a recipe I will be experimenting with and trying again. Kyle was very impressed with how close I came to the Greens & Grille flavor.
Clean Eating Hummus
Adapted from the Eat Clean Diet
- 1 1/2 cups chickpeas/Garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
- 2 cloves garlic (roughly chop so it's easier on the food processor)
- 1/3 cup Tahini
- Zest of 1 lemon
- Juice of 1 lemon + additional lemon juice to achieve desired consistency
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tablespoon EVOO
- Add all ingredients until combined in a food processor. The hummus should be well combined, but still chunky.
- Add additional lemon juice or EVOO to achieve desired consistency.

Do you make homemade hummus? What's your favorite type?
