I like my hummus to taste fresh and bright (not very heavy with garlic, cumin, etc.) so this was a perfect combo for me. It really is kind of like a lemon cookie!! Those of you who like it stronger might want to play around with the mix-ins. But the consistency was perfect and I was happy with the amount I got for the nutrition.
- 1.5 cups garbanzo beans (mine were dried + boiled)
- 1/2 a cup of plain yogurt (4 oz)
- 1 tbsp tahini (18 grams)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Red pepper flakes
I actually put the lid on and blended part of the lemon in it!! I had to fish out the chopped off piece, but you might want to add lemon zest to the ingredient list
Since there’s obviously no way of knowing how many servings this makes in tablespoons (and I had absolutely NO guess as to how many calories this would be), I like to use my scale to get the total weight and then I have a “per gram” serving amount. This guy made about 400 grams. I add up the total ingredients in CalorieKing and then divide by total grams. My lunch serving was 140 grams – easily calculated to 190 kcal, 6 grams fiber and 10 grams protein.
