Try veggies cooked new & different ways & find your favorite

Oil Free Classic Hummus

Prep Time: 10 minutes
2 cloves of garlic
2 cans chickpeas reserve liquid from one can
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and black pepper to taste



Place all ingredients except for reserved bean liquid in a high-speed blender or food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Add reserved liquid if necessary to help with texture.

Note: Garlic can be strong to some so you may want to add 1 clove at a time and decide if you need more.

Hummus is a healthy snack, right? Well if you are buying your hummus you may want to take a second look at the nutrition label and ingredient label. Making your own hummus can save you fat and calories because most store bought hummus brands have tahini paste (sesame) and oil. This makes 1 batch, which can be kept in fridge for a week.  Make on Sunday and you will have for the rest of the week.

Add 1/4 cup of your favorite flavorings to change your classic hummus into classy hummus!  Some ideas: roasted beets, spinach, more garlic, horseradish, roasted peppers, jalepeno and lime, the options are endless and your hummus will never be so guilt free again!

Happy & Healthy Eating!
