Hummus is enjoying it’s day in the sun! It’s now a popular snack and fresh versions are available at your local grocery store and small snack size packs are even found at gas stations complete with pretzels. But these versions are typically loaded with oil! Did you know that olive oil is 100% pure fat and is totally unnecessary in a great hummus recipe? Try this delicious and simple version and be amazed!
3 Cans of no salt added chickpeas, rinsed
4 Cloves of garlic
1 Tablespoon tahini (or substitute 1 tablespoon raw cashews. Soak them for 30 minutes in hot water to soften before use)
Juice from 1 lemon
Combine the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process on high 1-2
minutes until smooth. Add a little water and use a rubber spatula to incorporate the ingredients from the side of the bowl if necessary. Hummus should be thick and creamy. Serve with raw vegetables and whole wheat pitas for dipping.
