Basic Hummus recipe (with jalepeno)
1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup greek olives, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup red onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup jarred beets, patted dry and chopped fine
Start by chopping up all the ingredients.
Spread hummus on the bottom of a pie plate, or any other shallow dish. Then layer each ingredient on top. If you choose to use beets, use that as the final ingredient. It is a pretty topping!
Serve with fresh vegetables like celery, carrots and cucumber circles. Also, grilled whole wheat pita bread quarters are delicious if you're not avoiding whole wheat flour.
