{5 Ingredient 5 minute} Hummus

This post brought to you by Fit’s Moms Blog.

So I love hummus.

On pretty much anything thing.  I think I eat these at least twice a week. But it seemed like a lot of calories for just a couple of tablespoons of the stuff.

So I set out to try and remedy that.


And this version that I came up with is just a delicious as other versions, but want to know my secret???


No oil!!! It really doesn’t need it and the flavor is still there.

Dig in!

{5 Ingredient 5 minute} Hummus
Prep time
Total time
5 Ingredient 5 Minute Hummus
Serves: 6
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1½ teaspoons cumin
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and give it a whirl.
  2. You might need to add a few tablespoons of water to get the right consistency.
  3. Optional: sprinkle the top with smoked paprika.
  4. Eat!

Hummus is a very personal thing.  Just play around with the ratios until you find the perfect flavor for you.  I used a big clove of garlic (which was a little much, but I happen to love garlic) and more lemon juice (if you have been reading for awhile that should be of no surprise to you).

Calories per serving: 100 (yipee!), with is about 1/4 a cup much more of a decent serving size!
