Hi, and congratulations for joining the journey and for taking control of your own health and well-being. Every step you take is important and we are here to encourage and support you. When we gain new knowledge, we can make better choices. I still learn new things every day. One thing I am doing differently now is to modify some of my favorite old recipes to make them simpler, quicker and lighter (like no added oils). You will find my new version of Hummus at the end of this blog. It’s actually based on a traditional Middle Eastern recipe from an old cookbook I have, and it has no added oils. It’s very easy and has only 6 ingredients.


2 cups cooked and drained chickpeas, (reserve 1 cup of the liquid)
1 cup tahini
½ cup fresh lemon juice, or more to taste
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼- 1/2 cup chickpea liquid
½-1 teaspoon sea salt
Put the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and about 1/4 cup of the chickpea liquid in a processor or blender. Blend until smooth adding more liquid to make the texture you want for a dip or spread. Add more liquid if using like a sauce.
