Low Fat Hummus

Jump to Comments

Our family has been making hummus for a long time. When myy kids were really little they would sit on the kitchen counter and peel garlic for me on a regular basis. Then they started adding ingredients to help me out and then when they were older, I would go out for a run and they would make hummus while I was gone. Lets just say that the recipe and list of ingredients has evolved! This is currently the most common, even though it still varies widely. This recipe is also the easiest and fastest. We live on hummus for lunch. Its the best on toast or sandwich with tomatoes, red pepper and lately my son adds smashed avocados!

Low Fat Hummus

3 cloves garlic

2 cans chick peas, rinsed

2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. chipotle pepper from adobo sauce

1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice

1 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 c. water, less one tbsp.

Put garlic in a food processor and mince. Add the chick peas and a little of the water, just so it processes. Add the cumin, salt, lemon juice, olive oil. I always add the rest of the water a little at a time just to the consistency that I like, not too thick. Then add the chipotle pepper and process well. Taste for needed salt or lemon, or if you want a little extra zip, more chipotle pepper.
