Yesterday some of Clint's family came over for an afternoon visit, and I made some tasty snacks to share. (I don't think anyone else liked them quite as much as me, but that's not all that unusual for the food I make!)
First I made flax crackers. Did you know that flax is the richest plant source of omega-3? So these are super good for you, really cheap to make, and don't contain all those mystery ingredients of prepared crackers. What's not to love?
In a food processor combine 1 3/4c ground flax seeds, 1c chopped celery, 1 1/2c water, and 2T dried oregano.
this yummy Swiss chard artichoke dip. It's a great substitute for the popular sour cream laden spinach dip, but just as delicious!
Then I made my famous hummus. And when I say famous, I'm not kidding. People used to buy it from me in Savannah. I don't really want to sell it anymore though, so I'm going to share my secret recipe with you all. (I've found that the key to this recipe is the lemons. Use fresh, juicy lemons for the best flavor.)
Lizzie's Famous Hummus
Combine the following in a food processor, and adjust the seasonings to taste:
2c garbanzos (not canned - gross!)
1 clove garlic
Juice of 2 lemons
1/2 t salt
Clint's mom brought stuff for homemade ice cream, and his grandmother brought a delicious pecan pie. So much for the healthy snacking I was going for, but it sure was tasty!
