As the weather warms up, I am less and less enthralled with eating hot foods. (By mid August, my husband will start calling me at lunch time to ask if I remembered to eat today!) So, I'm trying to find really healthy/tasty snack options now to start making that I can keep on hand and actually EAT before I do something stupid and pass out. Again. Which is kind of a thing when you are 6'2 - the likelihood of accidentally taking out innocent villagers is quite high! :P

So anyway. I found a new Hummus-esque recipe in How It All Vegan the other day and decided to give it a whirl (even if it DID look odd.

TASTY TASTY TASTY! So much so, I had to share it on here.

Nutty Hummus Dip (great on apple slices, gluten-free-bread, carrot sticks, etc.)

1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup nut butter of your choice (I used some homemade cashew butter)
1/2 cup apple cider (or juice)
1 tsp cinnamon

Drop it all in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Keep in the fridge, but it is tasty enough I have no idea how long it would last in there. I think next time I might even try adding some cocoa powder and seeing how a chocolate version would work out.

This sounds wierd but I'll try it soon.

I posted a couple of dips on that Vegtables & fruit thread that I thought would be good for your rice paper wraps. Don't know if you can eat the ingredients but you might be able to substitute.

I just made those rice paper wrappers this past weekend. They are simple and delicious. I filled them with a mixture of sauteed thinly sliced mushrooms and chopped cooked shrimp that I sauteed in dairy free margarine. I added in cooked sticky rice and some sweet chili sauce and hot Chinese mustard. When I added the rice mixture to each wrap, I topped with a couple of slices of avocado. Rolled them up. I tried eating them fresh, pan frying in a bit of oil and baking them sprayed with Pam. I like the pan frying the best. Next time I will spray the pan with Pam, rather than using the oil. I used only about a teaspoon of oil but I think the Pam with work better. I made a mixture of hummus and sweet chili sauce for dipping. I gotta tell you, it was heaven! I did find out that the 8 inch wrappers only have 47 calories.. Yah!!!! Thank you soooo much for the idea!

Those sound great! I'm so glad the idea worked out so well for you.

Hi Magpie,
I am anxious to try your recipe as soon as I get home. My Dr. wants me to eat chick peas (sort of as a protien) but i couldn't find a good tasting chummus which suits my gluten-free diet and taste buds. This sounds like one i might enjoy....
Thanks for the recipe!
