    Mindelicious's Note:

    This is a super easy hummus recipe in which you don't need tahini and the result is still great tasting & creamy. Not the most amazing hummus in the world but if your into cutting fat & calories this is a great one to munch on. Isa also gives us 6 variations for this hummus. This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes.

      Yummy!! I did find I had to add more reserved liquid, but that is probably due to my blender. I used unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, no paprika and I did the Curried Green Onion Hummus version using Iraqi Curry Powder. I'd like to try some other versions of this easy hummus. Made for
      Veggie Swap 32 ~ March 2011.

      I made the roasted red pepper/kalamata combination and loved it! I loved being able to make a good tasting hummus without the use of tahini. I will keep this recipe handy. I especially love all the variations given. Thank you so much!

      I made the curried green onion hummus last night to bring to an Indian themed dinner party. I used madras curry powder, 2 tsp. I needed all of the chickpea liquid. This was really easy and I had all the ingredients on hand. It went over really well.
