I just love hummus. It is one of my absolute favorite appetizer and snack recipes.
This variation on a traditional hummus recipe was originally shared by Gena, from Prince George BC, Canada. Here is what she says about her recipe:
“Instead of Tahini in your hummus recipe use toasted sesame oil. Gives your hummus a very unique flavor. Also use a combination of toasted garlic with a fresh garlic clove. The more ‘fresh’ garlic cloves used, the spicier your hummus. I use a very fine natural lemon juice instead of reconstituted which can be bitter.”
Well Gena your recipe is absolutely fabulous. It’s also very simple, quick and easy to make.
- 19 ounces canned chick peas, drained
- 1/3 cup sesame oil, toasted variety
- 1/2 cup roasted garlic
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
- Combine all ingredients in a blender. If too thick to blend properly gradually add a little olive oil until well blended, or you can add a little of the juice off the chick peas.
Serves about 8 to 10 as an appetizer.
This is such a fabulously healthy recipe. Each ingredient in it has tremendous health benefits.
This delicious hummus recipe is perfect for so many specialized diets. It is great as a diabetic recipe, in moderation as the chick peas are a higher carb food. It is also gluten free so perfect for those on gluten free diets.
If you like this recipe, I’d love you to share it on your favorite social media sites. Thanks.
