Here's a delicious way to make creamy hummus without the added fat of tahini and olive oil. This is my variation of the hummus recipe found in Mediterranean Light Cookbook by Martha Rose Shulman.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse the beans and combine in food processor with other ingredients.
  2. Blend until thoroughly smooth.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings.
  4. Optional additions to change things up:
  5. 1 T roasted red peppers, or
  6. 1 T fresh cilantro, or
  7. 1/2 T chopped jalapeno pepper with 1 t dry salsa seasoning.

This is was a bit bland. I added 4 garlic cloves and it made it much better. All around a great dip considering it was fat free.
