Hummus is really easy to make in your blender. Puree a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), add two cloves of finely diced garlic, then slowly blend in olive oil and a bit of water until you find your desired consistency. Many recipes, authentically, add tahini to this. It is a paste made from hulled lightly roasted sesame seeds. It is used to make a smoother hummus. I like it made this way, but tahini can be pricey for how often I use it so I opt out. Hummus is great because the beans are high fiber and protein, great for a vegetarian dish or light lunch.
