TKS Healthy Hummus & Pita Chips

This is one of my favorite party snacks (just made this plate last night for some friends), it has plenty of fiber, protein and good fats. The kids love to take it in their lunch too!

Ingredients

1 15 oz can garbanzo beans (drained & rinsed)

4 cloves (peeled & pressed)

2 Tbsp Tahini

¼ cup cream of wheat cereal

½ regular red bell pepper (chopped)

2 Tbsp lemon (juice)

1/4 cup olive oil

½ tsp Dulse

1 package whole wheat pita bread

Instructions

  1. Gather all your ingredients
  2. Preheat oven to 350
  3. Cut the entire package of pita bread into half (so now you have 12 half moon pieces)
  4. Take each half and carefully separate each half by tearing the pockets open into halves (so now you should have 24 half moon pieces)
  5. Cut all the 24 half moon pieces into half (now you have 48) and each of those into half so now you have 96 pieces of pita bread (that should look like a chip)
  6. Place on baking sheet and cook for about 12 min
  7. Measure and prepare remaining ingredients
  8. Dump all remaining ingredients (except the olive oil) into your VitaMixer
  9. Blend until smooth
  10. Slowly pour in olive oil until mixed well

Notes

Want to make it even more healthy? Cut the oil to 1/8 cup or go all the way - you may need to add a little more lemon juice or water for moisture.
