Hummus and Crackers


Everybody loves hummus. Everybody.
2 c cooked garbanzo beans (2)
1/2 c water
3-5 T apple cider vinegar (traditionally lemon juice) (2)
2 T tahini (3)
2 cloves garlic, minced (4)
1/2 t salt (2)
2 T olive oil (2)
1/4 t cumin (2)
1/4 t paprika (2)
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
Add more water to achieve desired consistency.
Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, paprika, and olives.

Basic Whole Wheat Cracker
These where not the best. I ended up just reverting to my tried and true pickles-dipped-in-hummus habit. So good. (Plus McClure's Pickles are made in Michigan and delicious!)
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour (1)
1/4 t sea salt (2)
2 T oil (2)
6 T of water
sesame seeds (2)
garlic powder (2)
dried thyme (2)
Preheat oven to 325F
Mix together first 4 ingredients.
Knead for about 5 minutes.
Roll out onto oiled cookie sheet.
Sprinkle on herbs of your choice (sesame seeds, garlic powder, and thyme for me)
Score crackers the size you want for easy breakage post baking.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown.
