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.
