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

Good proportions, the base recipe is very nice.
I add a bit more water for consistency, and have added an assortment of herbs or just basil, very tasty either way.

I can’t get Bragg liquid aminos anywhere in the UK and can’t find an oil free broth either

Here’s a recipe for a vegetable bouillon (broth) powder https://shaneandsimple.com/vegetable-bouillon-powder/. I will never buy broth from the store again, ever.

I looked it up. Marigold do a Liquid Amino, and also I found:
5 liquid aminos substitutes
Tamari. Tamari is a dark flavorsome sauce that is made from fermented soybeans. …(I’d use this)
Soy sauce. Soy sauce is a dark brown (almost black) liquid that adds a lot of savory umami flavor to food. …
Coconut aminos. …
Fish sauce. …
Anchovies.

No idea what liquid aminos are…! I’m also in the UK, so guess that recipe is not for us. Anyone know what we can use instead?
