Why am I so obsessed with this ish?

The flavor is great and it packs a little punch of fiber.  Quinn loves it too so it’s a great way for me to let her dip things without resorting to devil-ranch.

I’m honestly a super-fan, but I generally don’t buy it that often or make it at home because tahini is expensive and really high in fat.  It was more of an indulgence when I would go out to eat.

I want to eat my weight in hummus but was looking for a way to replace the tahini and keep this recipe low-fat, so last week I made a batch.   It took me about five minutes and it required one bowl so clean up was a breeze.

I am 100% 157% a fan of anything I can prep easily with little clean up; I only had to clean the food processor bowl!

We used it up in two days and just added some gluten-free, msg-free seasoning to it so we had different flavor varieties: dill pickle, sriracha, black pepper asiago, ranch, etc.  (affiliate link)

These gluten-free and MSG-free popcorn seasonings are so good! We use it on chicken, salads, eggs and more

Here is my random bowl of goodness topped with hummus!

Options:

  • Swap the chickpeas for black beans and spice it up!
  • Pair with tortilla chips, pretzels, pita chips or naan bread
  • Enjoy as a veggie dip: tomato, onion, cucumber, peppers
  • Layer on a flatbread and make a pizza
  • Roll it up in a lettuce shell to make a wrap
  • Add to a panini
  • Coat chicken breast and bake
  • Fill hard boiled eggs

It might be easier to make a list of what NOT to pair hummus with…

Who’s ready to load their face with this?!

Oh… let me just mention macros really quick.

**IIFYM peeps…if you are using My Fitness Pal, you can add the link to this post to your recipes and it will automatically give you the macros and save the recipe for a quick add!  Just a handy little tip.

The whole batch is 610 cal / 20.5 F / 77 C / 32 P… the WHOLE BATCH, folks!.  So divvy up however many servings you want and then you will know your macros per serving size.  I figured 20 servings at 18.5g each… one serving of 18.5g would be 30 cal / 1 F / 3.8 C / 1.6 P
