This fat-free hummus is the perfect appetizer, party dip, or everyday snack!
Hummus is one of my favorite snack options with low-fat crackers, pretzels, and veggies. The problem I find too often is the amount of fat in most recipes. Therefore, I was ecstatic when I found this recipe.
I can’t take the credit, though; this awesome recipe is from the book, The Engine 2 Diet, written by Rip Esselstyn. I have several of Rip’s books, and every single recipe I have tried is yummy.
For Fat-Free Hummus, You Will Need These 5 Ingredients:
- minced garlic
- fresh or bottled lemon juice
- Bragg Liquid Aminos or Soy Sauce. Bragg Coconut Aminos or Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos for soy and corn-free diets.
- water or vegetable broth (I use water)
For weight watcher points, this entire recipe has 11 points. Divide as you like to figure out the points for your serving. I would probably have about 1/4 cup for a serving.
** If you feel it’s not creamy enough and not worried about fat content, feel free to add some olive oil. I would add 1/2 – 1 tablespoon to start. Naturally, this would alter WW points.
**Another option is to add some of the liquid from the can of garbanzo beans. I personally have not tried this myself.
Dump everything into the food processor and give it a few spins.
And it’s ready for veggies, crackers, chips, or a sandwich.

I just made it using 1 cup fresh spinach. Very yummy! Will have it with mini rice cakes, after it chills for a couple of hours..
