Most Wonderful Hummus Recipe Ever



Hummus varies in taste, flavor, and consistency. This recipe makes fabulous, tasty, delicious hummus every time. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, tasty, and easy to make. Let me know what you think when you make and taste this recipe. It comes from Healthy Cooking for Two (or just you) by Frances Price, R.D. which is a fun and excellent cookbook if you can still find it.

We use the hummus with vegetables for a meal. Others use hummus as a spread on sandwich or in pita bread. Let me know your favorite way to eat this sumptuous dish!

Rainbow Hummus

1/3 Cup Water

3 tbsp Tahini

3 tbsp Lemon juice

1 tbsp Olive Oil

16 oz Great Northern beans, rinsed & drained from a can

2 cloves garlic

4 parsley springs (sometimes I use cilantro)

1/4 tsp salt

dash(es) hot pepper sauce

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Process on medium speed until hummus is smooth. Serve immediately or store in covered container in refrigerator for up to 1 week (hah! It doesn’t last that long in our home!)


The China Study Cookbook


Holidays are over and spring is around the corner!

For Christmas, one of my sons gave me ‘The China Study Cookbook.’ Since then, we tried different recipes and enjoyed the results! Because one of our sons live nearby (with adorable wife and precious granddaughter), we bring the new cookbook and ingredients over to their home for Sunday meal – it is a great way to test a number of great recipes and leave leftovers for the new parents.

So far, we ate from Appetizers & Salads, Entrees, Side Dishes, and Desserts and loved nearly every dish created. I avoid the recipes with gluten for me – there are lots of gluten-free options available.
