Hummus Bowl

photo 2[1]

This is not so much a recipe but more so an idea for a fun and easy meal. My intentions with making this hummus bowl was to create a meal out of something I would normally snack on. This is a great alternative to snacking on hummus with crackers, or a good replacement for your standard salad. All the ingredients are fresh & raw.

Ingredients:

1 bunch of Kale

4 small carrots

3 small bell peppers

1/2 yellow squash

handful of snap peas

1/4 cup quinoa

2 Tb hummus ( I used eating right brand: spinach & artichoke)

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a bowl and either dip in hummus or mix together and eat as a salad.


Pumpkin Bars

I made history with these pumpkin bars… my father (who will not touch anything unless it’s “full fat and full sugar”) devoured almost the entire batch. Needless to say , they are delicious.
