-1 head broccoli
-1 head cauliflower
-2 zucchinis, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
-2 bell peppers sliced into thin strips about 1/4 inch by 2 inches… doesn't matter too much!
-cumin and chili powder to taste (or Guac seasoning is also delicious!)
-1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
-2 cloves garlic
-1/3 cup lemon juice
-1/4 cup of the roasted bell peppers
-1/3 cup tahini (optional, does affect the taste, but it's good either way)
-1/4 tsp cumin
-1/4 tsp chili powder
-1/4 cup light olive oil (optional, helps smooth out the texture. I use light because I don't care for the olive oil flavor. If you like that flavor, go with extra virgin olive oil)
1. For the veggies, roast them as you want. I only have a slow-cooker. So I greased the pot, tossed the veggies in coconut oil and spices, and roasted them for 8 hours while I slept. They came out a little overdone but delicious.
2. Set aside 1/4 cup of the bell peppers to use in the hummus.
3. Make the hummus by first processing the chickpeas, roasted bell peppers, and the optional light olive oil until grainy, then add all the rest of the ingredients and processes again until smooth.
4. Add water, a little at a time, to the hummus and process again if you would like a thinner texture.
5. Store the hummus in the fridge for up to a couple weeks.
6. When you're ready to eat, just spread a couple tablespoons of the hummus on a wrap, top with veggies and roasted chicken, then roll it up and enjoy! (If you don't want the wrap, simply fix it as a "chipotle" salad and throw the veggies and chicken on a plate and top with the hummus.)
Ideas for Eating:
Heat it up, or eat it cold. I tried hot, cold, and wrap-less and all ways were delicious! Also, it's just as good without the chicken for a vegetarian option, or as a light breakfast.
You could also cut up fresh veggies and dip them in the hummus.
BONUS! Song Recommendation!
Check out "Love Yourself' by Justin Bieber.
Is the Biebster back? I wouldn't quite call myself a "Belieber" but I do like his new album, especially the beats and more acoustic sound of this song. The video was more artistic than I anticipated. Enjoy!
