Basil Feta Hummus

basil feta hummus | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s a short work week thanks to the independence of our country! Woohoo! So that means there will be tons of cookouts and picnics (which reminds me to tell my husband to take me on one … a picnic that is 😉 ) This hummus is tahini free (I never have tahini on hand) and has a subtle flavor of basil and feta: my favorite duo at the moment! See, its good with fruit, too!

With 6 ingredients and one food processor later, you’ll have a delicious and light dip for that cookout. Pair it with pita chips, carrots, cucumbers or spoons. Let’s be honest … I can eat hummus with a spoon and nothing else. So good!

mushroom & black bean enchiladas

mushroom & black bean enchiladas | my skinny sweet tooth

My mother-in-law makes some killer enchiladas. They were actually the first meal of hers that I had had. *Give me a second while I reminisce*

I mean, she does the whole “fry the tortillas then drench them in sauce”. They are literally dripping with sauce and cheese and I may or may not have just drooled on my keyboard. Whoops. They are that GOOOOOD.

Nowadays, I’ve found a way where I can make them at home. Whenever I want. Like right now, guilt free. This recipe allows me to indulge in her classic flavors yet my pants will thank me later. 😉 Plus, since I’m cutting back with this recipe, I can truly enjoy her famous enchiladas when we visit. 😀

So, here’s the kicker. On my journey to eat better and lose some unwanted weight, I started cutting back on my consumption of meat. For one, having meat once or twice a week has also helped with the grocery budget. Meatless Monday? Yes, that’s a real thing. Meat is expensive, especially the grass fed/organic kind. So unless a recipe absolutely needs meat, I’m happy to sub in some vegetarian options.

Mushrooms are my favorite substitute as they’re so meaty and has a wonderful earthy flavor. I knew these were a must have in this dish alongside some nutrient packed black beans to round out the mexican flare. Mexican Monday? Taco Tuesday? Sounds great to me.

BONUS: it’s carnivorous husband approved. 😉
