I make hummus most nights. I'm not gonna lie. Why be ashamed of eating my body weight in hummus most evenings?
Especially when that means I have a healthy, delicious, low-fat version perfected!
I published my first Hummus recipe a long time ago, which I still love, but here is a version that has NO oil and is equally tasty (actually more, in my opinion!)
You'll Need: High powered blender
Makes: About 2 cups of Hummus
Time: TEN MINUTES
1 can Organic Chick-peas, drained.
(*handy hint from my awesome partner. Save the drained juice and use that instead of water)
1.5 tbsp Tahini (I use dark, unhulled)
1 clove garlic, crushed
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
Large pinch of salt
1/4 cup water on standby in case you need it
Simply combine all ingredients, apart from the water, in your blender and process until combined. I usually blend for a bit, then stop to push all the ingredients around with a spoon and blend again.
As the hummus begins to form - slowly add water to get desired consistency. I like mine fairly thick, which usually doesn't require much.
And WHAM - delicious, homemade hummus. Blend as long as you like, until the chick-peas are completely broken up and your hummus is thick and delicious. Season to taste.
