I attended a holistic conference this weekend and have a renewed goal to get my family eating healthier. Periodically I will share our meals with you so you can maybe get some ideas for your own family. Here is what we had for lunch today.
(the kids dipped their veggies in ranch, but hey, it's better than nothing, right?)
Recipe from herballegacy.com
1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans
*1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste), or 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds and 2 tablespoons olive oil
*3 tablespoons lemon juice
*1 clove garlic minced
*1/4 tsp cumin
*Salt and pepper to taste
Drain garbanzo beans, reserving liquid. Put beans into a blender or food processor. Add tahini or sesame seed and oil mixture, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and 1/4 cup of the garbanzo liquid. Blend together until mixture is the consistency of heavy batter (adding more garbanzo liquid if needed). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with olive oil or chopped parsley.
