This creamy dip is heavenly. I could eat it any time of the day. I would name it as convenient food, always have it in my fridge.
You could use this High -Protein versatile dip with any kind of sandwiches, salads, breads, or just chopped carrot and celery sticks.
The best part about making hummus is .. its just a Whizz away !!
You could choose to do a regular version or a low calorie version. The oil here is totally unavoidable.
I am posting a regular version here... in Oder to do a low calorie version just cut down the oil to your convenience.
- 1 can canned chickpeas/Garbanzo, drained & rinsed
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2cup olive oil
- 2 tbs tahini paste*
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- Juice of 1 lemon
Place the chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, tahini paste, cumin and lemon juice in a food processor and process until combined. If its a very thick paste add little water to make it a smooth paste.
Garnish it with poured olive oil and paprika.
** If you do not have tahini paste you could use 1tsp roasted sesame seed or 1/2 tsp sesame oil.
