Hummus, for me, is a kitchen staple.
It’s a recipe I grew up with that went on almost everything I ate 😉 …a dip made from chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans.
Now, beans are naturally higher in good/healthy carbohydrate – also with lots of fiber and some protein. If you want to reduce the carbohydrates, you can do what I did in this recipe, mix it with garlic dip (Toum) which can also be found in some grocery stores.
Alternatively, you can make hummus with eggplant – also called baba ganoush – or with zucchini. For these alternatives, you would sub in the veggie for the bean entirely.
P.S…. I screwed up on TV and forgot to put in the tahini! Don’t forget yours. Tahini is just ground sesame seeds, a seed butter you can find at most grocery stores. Add this to your hummus alternatives too.
