Healthy Hummus

Garlic Hummus

Who doesn't love hummus? Recently, I've seen some pretty wild ones out there. Like dessert hummus, for instance. Pumpkin, maple, caramel. Then there are peanut butter and the more traditional savory ones. It seems you're only limited by your imagination here.

Cajun Hummus

But how to keep the hummus healthy without adding tahini or oil? Easy! These two versions of tahini-free and oil-free hummus are delicious.

It especially helps if you have a food processor. I love that little thing. Enjoy!

garlic, chopped


Add whatever amount of garbanzo beans (maybe about 1-2 cups). Add in a little water. Blend.

Add in the spices you want until your desired taste is achieved. For one, we did only garlic and salt. For the other, we did cajun and garlic. Mmm cajun hummus.

Add more water to get the consistency you desire. The water will slightly separate from the hummus in the fridge.
