Today we take traditional hummus and do a little tweaking to make it a whole lot healthier for our purposes while keeping a creamy texture and tangy flavor.
The recipe calls for:
1 – can Garbanzo beans/Chick Peas, drained and rinsed
2 – Tbsp. Olive Oil
6 – Tbsp. Lemon or Lime Juice
2 – Tbsp. Chia Seeds (left to soak in 6 oz. water for 10 min.)
By using the chia seeds, we’ve effectively reduced the fat content of the recipe by 26 grams, or basically 240 calories… ALL FROM FAT!!
Plus we’ve added Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s as well as an additional 4 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber in just TWO TABLESPOONS of this stuff!
Try it out and let me know what you think.
