Easy No Oil Hummus

This is a staple in my house – I use it for a spread on sandwiches, as a base for a quick mac n’ ‘cheese’, instead of tomato sauce on a pizza…..  can’t live without it!  Make it your own by adding different ingredients and flavors that you like!

No Oil Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Easy Hummus

  • 1.5 cups garbanzo beans (1 can no salt rinsed and drained)
  • 4-5 artichoke hearts (packed in water from the can)*
  • 2 Tbs tahini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • juice from 1 large lemon (or more to taste and desired consistency)
  • ¼ tsp fresh black pepper

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  If it’s too thick, add some water and blend.

*or use 1 roasted red pepper packed in brine instead of the artichokes and blend to make roasted red pepper hummus.
