Mediterranean Low Fat Hummus

HealthyVegan's picture
This low fat hummus recipe is a favorite all-around snack or part of a vegan appetizer night, but if you are really big on hummus it can be a meal in itself. Have it with fresh vegetable sticks rather than pita bread, since we're all about healthy vegan recipes. Phil likes to call it 'huh-moose', with the accent on the moose. He tells me this is how they pronounce it in the middle east.
  Chickpeas/14 ounce can of chickpeas 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), fully cooked
  Tahini 3 Tablespoon
  Lemons 2 , juiced
  Garlic 4 Clove (20 gm), pressed
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (Approximate)
  Cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Radishes 1 , cut into sticks
  Carrots 1 , cut into sticks
  Cucumber 1 , cut into sticks
  Fresh parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Paprika 1 Teaspoon

Add chickpeas to a food processor (best choice) or blender (works ok) with enough water to come halfway up the beans. Blend to a thick paste, then add tahini, lemon juice and garlic and blend to a light cream, adding more water if necessary.
Spread the hummus on a plate, and sprinkle with any or all of: chopped fresh parsley, paprika and cumin.
Serve with vegetable sticks for dipping. I hope you enjoy this low fat hummus recipe, the latest of my healthy vegan recipes.
