Lower Fat Homemade Hummus

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by M.F.P.

This is great with pita chips or fresh cut veggies for dipping. Also good as a spread for wraps. You can mix it up and add cilantro/ lime (omitting the lemon), roasted red peppers, or even artichoke hearts. YUM!!! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. By the way you can find tahini in most health sections of the market. I've seen mine at Fred Meyer and Trader Joe's.

This is a great recipe! I added roasted red peppers and that made the hummus a beautiful color and gave it a wonderful taste. The only thing I would change next time is I will use a little less salt. I'm trying to cut back on salt.
