Today our theme is a 5 Ingredients or Less!

Most of what I cook is pretty simple.  Honestly, if the list of ingredients is super long or it involves a ton of steps, I am much less likely to try that recipe.  Mostly because my time is usually pretty limited when it comes to cooking, and my kitchen is tiny!

When I was thinking of what to share for this week I was thinking in terms of simplicity.  And then it hit me that I have never actually made one of my most favorite foods, hummus!
I think I have been scared that it would be too complicated or that it would not turn out well.  I am glad I was wrong about both my fears!

Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic Hummus
Ingredients
1. 2 Cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained (but keep ‘juice’)
2. 1 Roasted red pepper
3.  3 tsp olive oil
4. 1 drop Young Living lemon essential oil (you can also use 1/2 tsp lemon juice
5. Spices to taste (this makes a few more than 5, but at least it is all in 1 category!  Ha
I used Himalayan salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, & pepper flakes.
