I still don’t have the answers, but let’s say that I am getting closer.

Chickpea Crackers

lovelymuse, chickpea, crackers, vegan, gluten free, healthy, snackIt seems that my love for chickpeas and of course, hummus, has reached a new level: chickpea crackers, vegan and gluten-free. Maybe it is madness, or just a way of eating hummus in another way :)))…but let me tell you that this crackers are a brilliant idea. They are the perfect healthy snack alternative, easy to be taken to school or job. Not to mention that they nourishing and way too good. I made it with sesame and greek spices, but you can put whatever crosses your mind…The sky is the limit, as chickpeas go with everything. Continue reading

Lovely day my friends. I had some healthy and yummy inspiration for breakfast this weekend and I thought I might share it with you. I love Sunday mornings more than anything and I am sure you feel the same. Instead of making the classic omelette with vegetables, just pour the egg mixture in muffins forms and in 10 minutes you will eat a funny and veggie breakfast: egg muffins. Continue reading

Pesto Hummus

pesto, hummus, veggie, healthy, dip, snack, lovelymuse

If you aren’t bored…here you have another hummus recipe. I guess the recipes that start from the classic hummus are endless. Today I prepared a Pesto Hummus dip that is perfect as a snack between meals or as a light dinner. This type of healthy bite is so good also for this time of year, when we gather with friends and family around the Christmas tree and we need to make something fast and tasty. Well…hummus is always a most welcomed dish and I am sure that everybody agrees.

It goes just perfectly with the Chia seed crackers I just made the other days. What a combination…to eat, eat and again eat :)

Ingredients for 2 portions

  • 200g canned chickpeas (keep the liquid because we will use it later)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons already made pesto (I used organic pesto)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tahini (I also used organic already made tahini)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • around 4-5 liquid from the canned chickpeas
  • pinch of salt

Directions

1. Rinse the chickpeas in cold water and tip into the food processor.

2. Add tahini, pesto, parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt, lemon juice and the reserved liquid from the chickpeas.

3. Turn on the food processor and slowly pour in the oil while it runs.

4. When the mixture is fully combined and smooth, tip it into a serving dish. Add some more liquid from chickpeas if the mixture is not smooth enough.

5. Drizzle with some more extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with paprika and you are ready.
