Favorite Ingredient Friday - Hummus

I can't claim this as my own - I got it from my online friend Jean at the Frugal Foyer.

I love this stuff - I could eat it all day! I usually eat it with celery - my DH likes it with crackers.

Fat Free Hummus
  • 3 c. cooked garbanzoa (chickpeas - I use one lg tin - rinsed)
  • 3 cl. garlic or more
  • 6 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayeene
  • 3 tsp. cumin
Blend it all together in food processor or blender. Add water/bean liquid as needed to make right consistency. Like a dip. Adjust seasonings to taste. If you want you can add some tahini or sesame oil (I never have).

I love hummas as well and like it also with crackers, especially fat-free wheat thins. I have never made it though. Thanks and have a great day!

Dear Kim,
Your recipe lacks the second most ingredient in hummus: sesame tahini. You will not believe the difference if you make hummus properly (which most people don't).
You are very much invited to our blog: The Hummus Blog (guess what it's about...) at
