Ingredients

    Hummus Dip:

    1 can of chick peas (keep juice)
    3 tbsp of Tahini
    3 cloves of garlic
    juice from one lime
    1 tsp of hot chili peppers
    salt and pepper to taste

    Veggie Dip tray:

    Broccoli flourets
    Baby carrots
    celery sticks
    green pepper wedges
    red pepper wedges
    cauliflower pieces
    Grape tomatoes
    snap peas

Directions

In a food processor dump your can of chick peas, having drained them and set the juice aside. Add whole garlic cloves, Tahini, lime juice, salt, pepper and chili peppers. Start the food processor and blend all ingredients together. Gradually add a small amount of the liquid from the chick peas just to emulsify the mixture. Hummus should be creamy with no lumps. Transfer to a dipping bowl and place in the middle of your veggie tray.

The chick pea liquid keeps the calories down and the high protein up! Tastes great, dip your veggies in it!
