Rosemary Hummus & snack platter

This is my kids favorite way to eat lunch.  Throw some food on a platter: pick, dip and eat!  I usually make this simple rosemary hummus to go along with the veggies and pita chips.  The fruit and cheese are just to round things out!

Rosemary Hummus:
1 can garbanzo beans (or any white beans you like), drained and rinsed
1 tbsp dried rosemary or 2-4 fresh rosemary sprigs, leafs stripped
1 clove garlic
1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Put everything but olive oil in food processor and blend for a minute.  Then add oil a little at a time, blending as you go until everything is incorporated.  Salt and pepper.  To kick it up a notch, use crushed red pepper flakes instead of black pepper. That's it!  Serve with sliced celery, carrots, bell peppers, pita chips or tortilla chips.

* Beans kind of have it all.  Fiber, check.  Protein, check. Iron, vitamin B, antioxidants and other trace minerals.  Check.  Remember that obnoxious song you used to sing when you were a kid.  "Beans, beans, the magical fruit the more you eat. . ."  You probably know the rest, but as obnoxious as that song was it's remarkably accurate :) It's true that the more beans you eat "the better you feel."
