Hummus is a really healthy snack and quick to make. If you are in a hurry and can not use cock the beans fresh just open a can of chickpeas. Rinse them well to get all that salt and brine out. In a food chopper, mince 1 garlic clove, add the drained beans, a splash of lemon juice ( in a hurry use reconstituted, 1 TBS of olive oil, salt to taste. Blend till creamy. You can add a little water to thin it out. Enjoy with raw veggies as a dip.
If calories are not a problem you can make it the real way with extra olive oil and adding tahini. This is actually the proper way to make it. I usually make it without the tahini because I am usually watching my calories. I don't miss the tahini because the chickpeas actually have that nutty flavor.
You can also make a similar one using small white beans, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, ground cayenne pepper and minced fresh sage.
