Appetite for Reduction: Hummus
A reduced-fat version of hummus? Sold. Hummus is so easy to eat too much of, so I was excited to try the version in Appetite for Reduction. It uses no tahini but does use 1 tablespoon of oil. I made the plain version (there are several variations.) It was just OK. I'll eat it and be happy with it, but this isn't my favorite hummus recipe. I liked the reduced-fat cauliflower hummus from Veganomicon better. I think it was the oil that I didn't like in this version. Next time I'm going to omit the oil completely (I'll substitute it with the reserved chickpea cooking liquid) and try a variation.
