Basil Curry Hummus!

As sad as it is, I must speak the truth. Sometimes, prices of food are just too high to be purchasing certain items as frequently as I would like.

Yes, Sabra, I am looking at you. 

I posted a recipe for hummus before and discussed this topic. Even though I LOVE the smooth, cool, creaminess of a good ol' tub of Sabra, I just can't purchase a $7-8 tub of the stuff each week (which is about how fast I use it!).

I've found it SO much cheaper to just make my own. I used mixed beans last time, but this time I went traditional and used garbanzo beans. I can easily find an organic brand, with the only ingredients being sea salt and beans, for around a buck at my local Kroger.  

Basil Curry Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 TBSP olive oil
1/3 cup unsalted chicken or vegetable stock
2-3 basil leaves 
1 TBSP curry powder 

1) Place all ingredients into a blender.

2) Blend until smooth. If your blender is not the best, as mine is not, you may have to periodically stop the blender and mix the hummus around so that all the beans are blended. Add extra stock as needed.

And there you go! How EASY is that? 

What I love about making your own is that you can throw anything you want into the blender. Roasted peppers, extra garlic, even jalapeno! 

You can put this stuff on anything, use it as a dip, or a base for other dips/sauces. Do what I did and have on a slice of some home made whole grain bread! 

How do you like your hummus? 
Have you ever made your own?

I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world had crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could live a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from church to church but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could sever, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure for Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua herbal treatment (A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,Shingles, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetes,Fibroid,Parkinson's,Alzheimer’s disease,You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this email: WhatsApp: +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219.
