It is our favorite way to eat raw broccoli, dipped in hummus.  Our favorite hummus recipe is this:

Ingredients

  • 1 15oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas) drained and rinsed
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 TBL lemon juice
  • 1 TBL olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Blend up in food processor.

 

So, give it a try! Hummus and raw broccoli is a perfect healthy snack for your little ones.  It has a delicious blend of carbs, protein, fat, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, more easily absorbed than supplements ; )

My family is Lebanese and the recipe that we use is
I can chick peas (save liquid)
1/4 lemon juice
1/4 tahini (seseame) paste
1-5 cloves of garlic (depending how you like it)
Salt to taste
Mix it all in the food processor
We like it with pita bread, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, broccoli, basically any veggie 😉
