It’s not a secret that well-being and health are related to nutrition. Right nutrition always helps to feel better and maintain body shapes. But living in the routine of work and at fast pace of life, it’s easy to forget about healthy snacks and in many cases we lack the time to choose it. It happens to me when there is no time or when I just don‘t want to make food then I choose not very healthy snacks. Then I feel guilt. Although I tell myself in my mind that human beings do not always follow the rules bad feelings still come. Who does not do that? If we did otherwise we would be programmed robots…
So, in order to help myself and others find alternatives for unhealthy snacks I remembered this recipe. The first time my friend made this snack or we can even call it a meal for me. I want to thank her again because it was super tasty. In fact I have never been a big fan of hummus until then. But the addition of avocado to this dish softens the taste of humus, resulting in a milder version that I really enjoyed. It‘s healthier. And it’s very easy and quick to prepare. Just ideal.
Below I wrote the ingredients that I used.
- 1 can of chickpeas (home-cooked chickpeas can be used)
- 2 avocados
- Garlic Clove
- 4 large tablespoons of olive oil
- Salt pinch
- Sesame Seed for decoration
Cucumber, Carrot, Pepper, healthier gluten free – flour crackers, tomatoes, alcachofa (or whichever vegetable you want)
The preparation is very simple, all hummus ingredients are blended together, sprinkled with sesame seeds and served with the desired vegetables. Simple but very good. A snack that can turn into the main meal because of protein content. It‘s a real joy to find simple recipes, but it‘s an even greater joy when the taste exceeds all expectations.
