Spicy Chickpea Dip and Spread

I'm always looking for ways to boost my vegetable intake.  This dip is the perfect vehicle and is full of everything good:  healthy fats, yeast and bacteria fighters, anti-inflammatory compounds, and B-vitamins.

Use this as a dip for crudites, spread it on a sandwich in place of mayo, or add it to a wrap.  The predominant taste is garlic, and lots of it!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 Tbsp garlic
1 1/2 cups cooked garbanzo beans (no salt added)
3/4 cup good quality olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp brewer's yeast
1 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp sea or mineral salt

Directions:

Place garlic cloves in a food processor with blade attachment and run until chopped into small pieces.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth.  Place in glass container and refrigerate.  Source:  www.foodsensitivityjournal.com


Jamie Oliver is Back!

Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution is back for season II beginning tonight on ABC.  This time his focus will be on reforming the LA school lunch system.  Last year he convinced my son to give up processed chicken nuggets.  Can't wait to see what he has in store for us!
