Mediterranean Diet: Easy Hummus

4.3 / 5 Stars | 243 Reviews

by ELOVINGS

"I make this hummus all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the jalapenos! Serve with pita chips or fresh veggie slices. Add more of the reserved bean liquid for a smoother dip."

How to of the Day
How to Cook Cranberries
If you have fresh or frozen cranberries on hand, you may be wondering how to cook them. Try whipping up a delicious cranberry sauce on your stovetop or roast the cranberries in the oven for a unique spin on the traditional sauce. If you want a decadent treat, try baking cranberries in the oven with a bit of brandy. The most important thing to remember when cooking cranberries is to follow the recommended cook times. If you overcook cranberries, they'll get mushy and bitter!
How to Deep Fry a Turkey
Deep-fried turkey is delicious, but the process can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. However, if you follow the steps carefully, you can prepare a tasty turkey dinner for your family and friends! Before frying, always make sure your turkey is fully defrosted in order to avoid explosions when the turkey comes in contact with the frying oil.
How to Cook a Sweet Potato in the Oven
Sweet potatoes can be easily cooked in the oven and enjoyed with a few simple seasonings. To make roasted sweet potato pieces, cut up the potato into cubes first before coating the pieces with oil and seasoning. Then bake the sweet potato pieces until they are crispy, and you will have an easy side-dish that goes well with many different meals! To bake sweet potatoes whole, pierce through the skin several times using a fork. Then bake the sweet potatoes until they are tender, and top them with butter, salt and pepper.
