Light and Easy Hummus

This simple hummus takes minimal time to prepare and only requires a few ingredients. Use it as a dip with your favorite veggies and snacks. Or get creative and spread it on a slice of toast to create a delicious and light meal.



1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
2 T. water
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. lemon juice
1 garlic clove minced
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
Salt to taste



Add the garbanzo beans, 2 tablespoons of water, the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. If needed, add additional water to thin out the hummus and add salt to your taste preference.

Store covered in the refrigerator.

* I like to toast a piece of bread, add a layer of the humus with avocado, radishes, chopped green onion, with a sunny side egg on top.
