I love hummus! It’s the perfect dip for chips or raw veggies. It’s so easy and cheap to make, compared to the store-bought variety. And you can ad-lib to make your own flavor combinations that taste way better! Here’s one simple version that tastes great if you like garlic. But be warned: you will have garlic breath after eating this!
This recipe is a real refresher after a long day of hiking, or anytime the weather gets hot! The cucumber and green tea meld well together to create a subtly sweet tea. I use a cold-brewing method to infuse the tea, which brings out the tea’s natural sweetness. I used DōMatcha’s Organic Tencha Green Tea, which has a particularly rich, sweet flavor, though you can use other types of green tea as well 🙂
2 DōMatcha Tencha Green Tea teabags
8 cups water (cold)
20 thin slices of cucumber (1 small cucumber or half of a large cucumber)
Place the cucumbers, water, and teabags in a pitcher. If you’re adding herbs, “bruise” them by rolling them between your hands for a few seconds, and add them into the pitcher. Place the pitcher in the fridge overnight.
When you’re ready to serve, remove the teabags and garnish with lemon slices. Add a couple tablespoons of agave syrup to sweeten to taste!
