This is my favorite DIY hummus recipe. The fact that it contains less fat and calories than many store bought brands is just a bonus. Hummus is great with veggies or crackers, spread in a wrap with sprouts and cucumbers or served on a salad. I don’t use tahini in this recipe because I really don’t care for it. With fresh garlic, dill, real lemon juice and lemon zest- it is bursting with flavor without the traditional ingredient. I promise. I reduce the fat & calories by using just a small amount of olive oil and letting the lemon juice and “bean juice” work to replace the rest of the oil. This recipe is super simple but you will need a food processor.


Lemon Dill Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans- drained, juices reserved
1 Tbls olive oil
2 Tbsp reserved bean juice
2 cloves garlic -skins removed
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest from 1/2 a lemon
Fresh dill- I just use a handful
Salt- to taste

1. Toss everything in food processor & process until smooth (add more bean juice is necessary)
2. Enjoy!
