Buffalo “wing” hummus dip

Ok Superbowl is almost here…which means that there is potentially a day approaching where fatty foods, alcohol and couch sitting will be taking out. Let’s try to make the most of us and trick ourselves into eating healthy for the day…..I promise you will feel better next week for doing it.


1/2 bottle of your favorite buffalo sauce (I like the organic Franks Red Hot)
1 can of garbanzo beans
3 tbsp. of tahini (sesame seed paste/oil)
2 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice
3 cloves of garlic
S/P to taste

1. Add tahini and lemon into your food processor (I use a Ninja) and blend….a lot….I like to make mine nice and mousse like. Normally blends for 1-2 minutes solid.
2. Add garlic and blend for another minute
3. Add 1/3 of the can of garbanzo beans (not drained…with the fluid), into the processor and blend for a minute. Continue to add more and blend until the whole can is blended.
4. Add hot sauce, s/p and blend to taste.

By whipping the tahini and lemon together and adding the garbanzo and liquid into the blender slower, you are able to get a smooth creamy hummus…which is more along the consistency of a thick ranch dip, instead of a chunky hummus.
