Almost every diet meal plan these days includes hummus. If dipping vegetables will get my kids to eat more of them, then I am all for it!! Low and behold, the kids preferred it with bread.
I researched many recipes and this is one of the lower fat versions that I came up with. The hummus came out a bit thick. Some recipes include the liquid from the canned chickpeas. I prefer to drain the chickpeas and rinse off as much sodium as possible. Most of the photos I saw in cook books have a pool of olive oil swimming on top of the hummus. That might be a bit too much fat for my sensibilities. When I made this dip, I had a hard time feeling comfortable adding all of the fat from the tahini and olive oil. After doing the nutritional analysis, the fat breakdown wasn’t as extreme as I expected. The nutritional analysis gave this recipe an A+.
Next time, I will add a bit more water to make it spreadable. I’ve read recipes that increase the oil and recipes that add a cup of water to these proportions. I think one cup of water will make it too thin, but perhaps 1/2 cup might have made it a bit easier to dip softer vegetables. I like mine a bit rustic and chunky. What do you think?
