There's a Hummus Among Us!


15 ounce cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (reserve juice from one can)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce (use gluten-free, if preferred)
2 tablespoons tahini paste (or a few shakes of sesame oil)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin


Place all ingredients into a blender (for smoother hummus) or a food processor (for chunkier hummus).
Add reserved bean juice a couple of tablespoons at a time, until desired consistency is reached. I use almost the entire can of juice in my hummus. I like it really creamy!
When you get ready to serve, sprinkle with a dash of paprika and spritz a little lime juice on top. Green onions on top are nice too!




Hummus is a staple in every healthy kitchen. It's packed with fiber and vitamins, and it tastes delicious! I like dipping carrot sticks and baked tortilla chips into it. I also like to spread some hummus on a whole wheat tortilla, with a bit of salsa and green onion, and grill it up like a quesadilla. Yum!
