Ingredients

    Juice from 1/2 a lemon
    1-19oz can of chickpeas (540mL)
    2 tbsp tahini
    1 tbsp curry powder
    1 tbsp chili powder
    1 tsp oregano
    1/4 cup water (optional)

Directions

In a bowl, mash chickpeas with the lemon juice. Blend in tahini. Add spices. Stir mixture until all ingredients are evenly mixed. If you want the hummus to be creamier, mix in the water.
Note: This recipe becomes incredibly easy if you have a food processor. Just add all ingredients and blend until smooth. This would also give you the option of using whole garlic cloves and fresh herbs.
Try experimenting with different spices!

    This is a VERY LOW CALORIE hummus, as it contains no olive oil. The serving size here is HUGE, much larger than the standard 2 tbs serving size of store bought brands (for those complaining that 220 calories is a lot). - 3/29/08
