I am addicted to hummus. Therefore, I eat A LOT of hummus. Hummus usually contains a ton of olive oil and tahini (good fats but but too much fat considering how often I eat it). So I decided to come up with a version that was oil-free and tahini free – and oh my god is it ever good. It’s also very simple and easy to make. You’ll need a food processor (my favourite kitchen appliance), or a high speed blender (although I find it hard to get the hummus out once it’s mixed).
- 1 tin of chick peas
- 1 clove garlic
- lemon juice (to taste)
- salt (to taste)
- chili peppers
Process the chick peas, garlic, lemon juice, and salt together, adding small amounts of water until the desired consistency is achieved. Garnish with paprika and chili peppers.
I usually use the hummus as a dip and cut up veggies like zucchini, carrots, cucumber, peppers, and tomato, or I’ll use it as a topping on a buddha bowl. Or if I’m really in the mood for hummus I’ll simply grab a spoon!
There you have it! Simple, delicious, guilt-free hummus. Enjoy.
