Light Hummus



This hummus is very simple to make. Drain a can of chick peas and add to the processor. Add the juice of half a lemon, one clove of garlic pressed or minced, two tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Whirl the ingredients or pulse a few times until the beans have pureed. The calorie count includes the beans and the two tblsp olive oil. That's it. A low calorie hummus that anyone can whip up. Serve with crudite or crackers.

  • One thing I hate about shredding cheese though is cleaning the grater. All I do is spray it with a little oil. Or you can use a can of oil type spray. I love my Misto oil sprayer. It does not take much. Just spray it a little before you shred the cheese. Shred the cheese as you normally would and then clean the grater. The cheese wipes up much easier. Now, you still have to clean it, but it is easier. - by SLACHETKA103145
