Homemade Spicy Hummus
I have been reading a bit about foods that naturally raise your metabolism. I have a slow thyroid and sometimes, I really feel fatigued! Well, chili peppers are one of those foods that will give you a boost. I used crushed red pepper flakes in this recipe. It is not too spicy, but you will feel a little heat.
You will need: 1 can Garbanzo beans(AKA chickpeas) (If you live by Giant Eagle, their Nature’s Basket brand has less sodium then all the others), the juice of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, 1 tablespoon tahini, dash of salt, 2-3 cloves of garlic, water
Put everything in the food processor or blender. Pulse. Add water as needed to thin it out.
