Lower fat garlic hummus

Submitted by: SCRAPPYGRAMMY

Introduction

Keep some on hand for a quick, healthy dip to go with 100% whole wheat pita, or veggies. It can also be used to spread on crackers or as a sandwich spread in place of mayonnaise.

Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    2 15 oz. cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
    1/2 cup tahini (sesame paste)
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup olive oil
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 cup lemon juice ( 2-3 lemons)
    2 Tbsp lime juice
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 Tbsp cumin powder

Directions

Makes about 16 1/4 cup servings.

Place all ingredients in bowl of food processor and blend until smooth. (You can use sesame seeds in place of already made tahini when made in the Vita-Mix.) Serve with pita bread triangles, fresh veggies or use as a sandwich spread. You may use more or less garlic to suit your taste. The regular recipe uses 3 times the olive oil, but this has a really good, authentic flavor! If you don't have lime juice, you can make it with just lemon juice, but the resulting flavor seems to be missing something.
