INGREDIENTS

  • 400 grams or 4 cups of cooked chickpeas (you can cook yor own or used canned chickpea)
  • 200 grams or 2 cups of frozen green peas
  • 2 tbsps tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 or 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 fresh mint leaves
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cook green peas for 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place canned chickpeas and cooled green peas into a food processor. Add tahini, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and mint leaves. Mix really well.
  3. If you find the hummus to be too thick, add little bit of water or 1 to 2 tbsps of olive oil.
  4. Add salt and pepper
  5. Spread a generous amount of hummus on Fit Figure CORN QUINOA cake and garnish with fried chickpeas, mint leaves and sesame seeds.

 

PRO TIP: Blend in roasted red peppers into your hummus for that extra burst of flavor. Naturally sweet, this crunchy veggie is even tastier when charred to perfection. Plus, red bell peppers are packed with vitamins A and C, which are essential for maintaining youthful skin.

 

DO AHEAD: Green pea hummus can be made 4 days ahead; transfer to an airtight container and chill.

Salted Vanilla Peanut Cacao Spread, Hello, You Want This
Salted Vanilla Peanut Cacao Spread, Hello, You Want This

December 22, 2019

It’s important in the life of a snacker to have a collection of condiments and spreads so vast you’ll never get bored. Or this is what we tell ourselves when we go hunting in the pantry for our precious salted vanilla peanut cacao spread. Everybody’s favorite ingredients—vanilla, peanuts and cacao—mixed together into a spread and there is nothing not to love about this fact.

This brilliant spread has the smooth, spreadable texture of peanut butter, but a rich, chocolaty flavor that we have to admit—tastes like frosting. The jar beside our keyboard as we speak won’t last too long. Homemade! Delicious! It whispers. Vegan! 100% Pure! We almost forgot one: Gluten-free! There’s a lot going on here. But this is a chocolate spread, people, made with powdered sugar. If you want health food, sub with maple syrup.

Lentils in the morning, lentils in the evening, lentils at suppertime. We stan lentils over here at Smartbite Snacks. What’s not to love? They're cheap, relatively quick-cooking, packed with protein, and cute as hell. And, to top it all off, they're an essential component of one of our all-time favorite food categories: The Soup Group. 

The soup weather is here to stay for a while and nothing makes us crave soup like a little bit of rain and little bit of freezing temperatures. Red lentils are your mush-town friends when you crave that fall-apart texture when you’re making that thick, full of chunks and flavor coconut-y + mushroom-y lentil and tomato curry. Oh, hell yeah. It’s starting to smell like soup.
