Good basic recipe. Instead of the plain water, save the bean water that you drained out and use that a Tablespoon at a time as needed. It adds to the flavor of the Hummus and increases the fiber a tiny bit.

This is really good with roasted red peppers, or artichokes, or Fresh basil blended into the process. I have a bumper yield of Basil right now, so I am making Red Pepper and Basil Hummus for snacks and as a sandwich spread.

I love hummus and I also add Canelli Beans with my chick peas. It makes the texture a little smoother. I do use evoo in mine though. It adds a wonderful flavor and helps with the viscosity of it.

All vegetable oil contain the same amount of fat and Calories, 9 „éČ per gram. There are "good" and "bad" oils which can control cholesterol (HDL and LDL) values. Extra virgin olive oil is your best choice. "ohneclue" get a clue.

Hummus is one of the things I am willing to spend my carb grams on — I LOVE IT but I don't add that much olive oil because of the extra calories. I know it is a healthy oil but even healthy oils have calories that can end upon my body and fight me for control over .my blood sugars.
