Simple hummus recipe.  This particular recipe uses less oil and more lemon juice and tahini instead.   To even make it lower oil, use the liquid from the chick pea can instead of the olive oil.  You can also use non-canned chick peas. Soak 2 cups overnight, cook for about 10 minutes on the stove until tender.


  • 1 can of garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • dash of paprika (can also use smoked paprika)
  • Cayenne to taste (optional)


Process in food processor until smooth

Serve with olive oil and paprika on top.2016-09-24-18-01-56
