  • Makes 1 batch

Virtually nonfat, this tasty, oil-free hummus recipe is the healthy antidote to your hummus cravings. You can find a store-bought variation of this no-cook recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with added olive oil and tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes to whip up a batch of homemade, oil-free hummus on Sunday that will last you through the week. Enjoy it with crudites, on toast, in wraps, bowls, and more.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • ¼ cup water or vegetable broth

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients into a thick paste.
  2. You can also customize this recipe by adding one or more of the following: 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds; 1 fresh jalapeño, seeded and chopped; 1 roasted and chopped red bell pepper; 1 cup Kalamata olives; 1 bunch fresh mint; 1 cup fresh spinach; 1 cup cooked eggplant
