Hummus

Olympic Men’s Figure Skating Medalist Brian Boitano was on Rachael Ray promoting his cookbook. Who know he loved to cook. A woman in the audience asked what his favorite snack was and he said it he would whip it up for her. Of course, Rachael wasn’t sure if they would have all the ingredients. Sure enough, she did. Here is a quick hummus recipe packed with all the fiber benefits of beans.

HummusGarlicky Whole Bean Artichoke Dip by Brian Boitano
1/3 c. olive oil
1 (15 oz.) can of cannellini beans, drained
1 (15 oz.) can of artichoke hearts, drained
Juice of a lemon
2-3 garlic cloves
salt and pepper

Blend and serve. This recipe is good with wheat crackers, pretzel chips, and zucchini.

Notes:

  • I used a smaller jar of artichokes and it turned out fine.
  • I used bottle lemon juice and jarred garlic.
