Today’s answers are at the bottom of the page under the last photo. If you need to reduce your fat intake, the easiest way to control your fat content is to make your own hummus.
Yes, you still have fat in chick peas, but you are eating a whole food. The tahini you choose will have a fair amount of fat in it, but you could also reduce the tahini called for in my recipe to suit your dietary requirements.
In short, there are no hard and fast rules about how you make your hummus! Make it with oil, no oil, different types of nuts like cashews or stick to traditional sesame tahini paste.
The nice thing about making your own hummus is how cheap it is, especially if you can get into the habit of soaking your $2 bag of chick peas the night before a party.
Serve Renata’s Super Fast Party Hummus and you will only spend a few dollars entertaining for a dozen people to eat!
Serve this hummus with veggies and you will have a super low fat, high fiber party platter that will fill your friends up without weighing them down.
