T'aint a party without buckets and buckets of hummus.

Hummus is not precisely a healthy food. Because it is generally a whole food, it seems very healthy. But the fact of the matter is that delicious hummus is delicious because it is absolutely loaded with olive oil, and sesame oil, and salt.

Healthy hummus
2 cans chick peas (rinsed)
1 tbsp sesame tahini
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic
juice of a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
Blend ingredients in food processor. Add water to correct consistency. Feel virtuous.

Actually Delicious Hummus
2 cans of chick peas, drain one- keep liquid from the other
4 tbsp of sesame tahini
1 large bottle of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic (boiled and peeled)
juice of a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
Blend up your chick peas and sesame tahini with the lemon juice, it will be sort of chunky. Stand over food processor with bottle of olive oil and pour it into the hummus while it is running. Continue pouring until you feel like you have to look away because you are using so much oil.
When hummus is whipped and creamy, add salt and pepper to taste. Be smug as skinny people gorge on your hummus because 'hummus is healthy' teehee....
