5-MINUTE HUMMUS? I CAN’T EVEN TOAST BREAD IN THAT TIME!

I love Hummus….but, found that buying the “easy” version in the stores often led to eating waaayyyy too much salt, fat and oil. So, while flipping through a Women’s Health magazine (my typical Dental office modus operandi) I found this super easy, healthy version. Thought I’d share it….there is a surprise ingredient….

SKINNY DIPPING

2 T EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

2 – 4 T Fresh Lemon Juice

2 – 4 T Water (use this to adjust the thickness)

1 Can Garbanzo Beans drained

1/4 C Tahini (I like THIS brand – easy to use and yummy)

1/4 C Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt

MAKE IT:

Mix liquids first, then add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more water and salt to taste.

THE DEETS:

Makes 12 servings / 75 Cals per serving / 5.5 g fat / 5 g carbs / 1 g protein / 1 g fiber

You can add almost any veggie to this…I just tried beets…loved it! What is YOUR favorite flavor of hummus?

Eating well and Aging Backwards,
