DSC_0948This week’s recipe is an original hummus recipe! We really like hummus, as it’s a great healthy snack option. If you were to buy pre-made hummus at the grocery store, it would likely cost $3 – $4. The estimated cost for this recipe is 75 cents! What a great cost savings! There are many different hummus recipes available. After making several different kinds, I experimented with this recipe the other day. I like it better than any other I’d made before! A lot of hummus recipes have an ingredient called ‘tahini’. (a ground sesame seed paste that is similar to peanut butter) This recipe saves you from buying tahini, and even though it uses a small amount of peanut butter, you can not taste it at all in the flavoring. (it just helps with the texture)

McCraine Hummus
1 can garbanzo beans (chick peas), with liquid reserved
1/8 cup natural creamy peanut butter
3 cloves minced garlic
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 small pinch red pepper flakes (less than 1/8 teaspoon – more if you like a spicy flavor)
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup water
1/4 cup liquid from beans

1. Add all ingredients to blender or food processor, and blend well.

2. Refrigerate and serve as a dip for vegetables, crackers, or chips. You can also use hummus as a spread on a sandwich, such as turkey or chicken.

About this site

A disease is a particular abnormal condition, a disorder of a structure or function, that affects part or all of an organism. The causal study of disease is called pathology. Disease is often construed as a medical condition associated with specific symptoms and signs. It may be caused by factors originally from an external source, such as infectious disease, or it may be caused by internal dysfunctions, such as autoimmune diseases. In humans, "disease" is often used more broadly to refer to any condition that causes pain, dysfunction, distress, social problems, or death to the person afflicted, or similar problems for those in contact with the person. In this broader sense, it sometimes includes injuries, disabilities, disorders, syndromes, infections, isolated symptoms, deviant behaviors, and atypical variations of structure and function, while in other contexts and for other purposes these may be considered distinguishable categories. Diseases usually affect people not only physically, but also emotionally, as contracting and living with a disease can alter one's perspective on life, and one's personality.
