Tahini is usually a staple to Hummus – and it’s not necessarily bad for you. But, here is an option for a healthier “Tahini-Free’ Hummus (plus it’s super quick and easy). Another plus- easy to put into small Tupperware containers and take with some carrots, crackers, celery, etc to eat for a snack at work.
- 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained (garbanzo peans)
- 1 15 ounce can black beans, drained
- 1 tbsp minced onion (I use dried- found in spice section at grocery store)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Blend all ingredients in a food processor until desired smoothness
Again- it’s been over a month since I’ve made this. But- I remember it being a healthy snack that tasted healthy. It was really really good- but next time I may add some Cayenne Pepper to give it a bit of a kick.
