Want a hummus recipe that actually makes you excited to make hummus? It's so easy to buy pre-made hummus these days, but many contain less-than-ideal preservatives and come with hefty price tags. This recipe is full of immune-boosting ingredients that will help you eat your greens in a whole new way.

Read the instructions for our pro tips to help make your hummus just the right consistency, every time. Serve with warm pita bread, chips or roasted veggies... or all three.
1 garlic clove
2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 4-ounce package FG Awesome Arugula
1 4-ounce package FG Peppery Peas
¼ cup tahini
½ cup olive oil (good quality)
2 2-ounce packages FG Micro Broccoli
½ cup green onions, chopped
½ cup cilantro (or parsley, dill, etc), de-stemmed
½ cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper, fresh cracked
½-¾ cup warm water
Note: If you like a dense dip, more like a paste, add minimal water. For a creamy dip, add ½ cup water and up to an additional ¼ cup water. Test frequently for consistency and see what you prefer. Adding more water will loosen and soften the dip and slightly warm the ingredients, making it easier to combine for a smoother texture.
Serve immediately and store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
