Lunch Recipe - Basic No-Oil Hummus


It seems like there is nothing easier than making your own hummus, yet not many people even bother. Its one of my absolute favorite spreads. I love it on toast by it self, in a sandwich with rocket and tomatoes, in a wrap with roasted veggies, a big dollop of it in buddha bowls... you get the picture, lol.

I make it without adding any oil, because I think its unnecessary, but you can certainly add some if you wish. I don't recommend it, however, especially if you're trying to loose weight. Remember that oil is liquid fat and has 9 calories per gram. So if you add just two table spoonfuls of oil, you will be adding 270 empty calories! Just think about that....





Ingredients


1 Can of Chickpeas or 400gm Home Cooked (well soaked and boiled till soft)


2 Cloves of Garlic


Zest and Juice of one big Lemon


3 tbs of Tahini


Salt and Pepper


Cold Water

Method


Place chickpeas, garlic, lemon zest and juice in a blender.


Start blending it and adding a little bit of water, just enough for the mixture to form a paste and work inside the blender.


Don't worry if it seems a little too runny.


Blend it until it is completely smooth then add tahini, salt and pepper. It should thicken up after adding tahini and refrigerating it for a few hours.
