Hummus - Mel's low(er) fat version

Submitted by: VERIVEGI

Introduction

I'm experimenting with making some of my favorite foods and recipes with lower fat content. I'm experimenting with making some of my favorite foods and recipes with lower fat content.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 15.5 ounce can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
    1 tablespoon tahini
    1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon lemon juice (this was all I had, usually would have used more like 2-3 tablespoons)
    1-3 cloves garlic, more or less to taste
    1 teaspoon ground cumin, more or less to taste
    salt to taste
    water as needed, start with a tablespoon

Directions

1. Drain and rinse chick peas.
2. Place all ingredients into the work bowl of food processor.
3. Pulse to blend and form a smooth paste, adding water to achieve the desired consistency (some prefer a firmer "paste" texture, others prefer a smoother "dip" texture).
4. Transfer hummus to a food container and refrigerate for at least an hour (up to overnight). This gives the flavors time to marry!

This makes about 1-1/2 cups of hummus, so you'd get about 6 1/4-cup servings from the batch.

Hummus may be served cold or at room temperature. Enjoy it with crudites, pita bread, crackers, or use as a sandwich spread!
