This hummus is a great, yummy (and healthy) snack. This version is lower in fat and higher in fiber than store bought versions and the best part? You control how much or how little of certain ingredients you want. If you want extra zestiness, go ahead and add another red pepper. I plan on taking this to work to snack on after a long day of seeing patients. My carrot sticks were looking lonely so I thought a nice dip would cheer them up.
Adapted from ‘healthy eating for life’
Makes 2 cups or 8 1/4 cup servings
1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans (rinse well before using)
1 tbsp tahini (I didn’t have this so I used a handful of almonds)
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)
Smoked pepper to taste
1/2 cup roasted red peppers (I ended up using 3 red peppers)
Combine everything in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add extra water as needed until your hummus is a smooth consistency.
