Need a healthy snack to take on-the-go this summer? Try this hummus and pepper sun recipe when the kids get hungry.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

    • Combine the chick peas, garlic, and olive oil in the bowl of a food processor until the mixture is smooth.
    • With the food processor running slowly, add the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the warm water.
    • Pour the hummus into a small bowl. Adjust seasoning to your taste with salt and pepper.
    • Place the hummus bowl in the center of a round plate. Arrange items for dipping around the bowl, so that the hummus looks like the center of the sun, and the dippers look like the sun's rays.
