bariatric vegetarian hummus

Bariatric Vegetarian Hummus Recipe

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced and then mashed
  • 2-15 oz cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • 2/3 cup tahini (sesame seed paste, it’s a bit like peanut butter but made from sesame seeds)
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • (optional) black olives for garnish
In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients. The texture should be thinner than mashed potatoes. You can leave out a few garbanzo beans as a garnish.
Serve with pita bread wedges, fresh cut vegetables like cucumber, or baked chips.  Makes 12- ¼ cup servings
