Broccoli  and Cauliflower with Hummus

If the only way you eat hummus is as a dip you might want to try it this way. I love tossing hummus on hot, cooked veggies. Warming the hummus a little really brings out the flavors and it is a nice change for the veggies, too. Last time I made it I had a lot of cauliflower so added some to the mix. Since I am lactose- intolerant it is another option for me.


Steamed Broccoli with Hummus

1 lb. fresh broccoli

1/2 c. hummus, homemade or store bought


Cut broccoli into long spears, peeling and trimming tough stems. Steam until just tender. Warm hummus over low heat or in a microwave and spoon over the cooked broccoli. Serves 4 as a side dish, 2 as a main course.


1 can garbanzo beans, drained

1/4 c. olive oil

2 T. lemon juice

2 T. tahini (sesame seed paste)

2 cloves garlic

salt and hot pepper sauce to taste


Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Adjust seasonings. Chill. Serve with pita bread, crackers or fresh vegetables. Also nice spread in a pita bread with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce. Freezes well.
