AMAZING VITAMIX RECIPES


APPETIZER - SPICY HUMMUS

When you're looking for that perfect snack or appetizer, hummus is always a delicious choice. With so many options on the kinds you can make, it's easy to have a different flavor as often as you'd like. 

Ingredients needed:

  • 15 ounces canned chickpeas,
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • ½ cup Tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon salt

You can place all of these items into your Vitamix mixer, select variable 1, and be amazed as it mixes into a tasty hummus mix. For a creamier blend, you can slowly increase the settings as it mixes.

BREAD - FRENCH BREAD 

Bread is a household necessity in most homes. It pairs well with almost any dish, you can eat it a million (and one) different ways, and it's usually the first to go at grocery stores.

Needed Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water, divided use, 105˚F-115˚F (40˚C-46˚C)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
