hummus-21 recipe

I love hummus and have tried all kinds of recipes from lots of
cookbooks.  I finally developed the following recipe - but as it makes
2 cups of hummus and 1 Tbs. of tahini has 8.1 grams of fat - only 1
tsp. doesn't add much fat (2.7g), but adds the necessary flavor. So
here's my recipe:


2 each cloves garlic, pressed or minced
1 tsp. Tahini
3 Tbs. lemon juice (1/2 large lemon)
1 can (15 oz.) garbanzo beans
Few grains cayenne
1 tsp. no-salt Table Shake seasoning (Shilling All-Purpose)
1/4 cup liquid from garbanzo beans or broth or water

Drain and rinse garbanzo beans, reserving liquid (if using). Put all
ingredients in food processor or blender. Puree until smooth and creamy
adding just enough liquid. Taste and adjust seasoning. Place in an airtight
container and chill until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature before

I think I'm addicted to the above. I eat it with celery, carrots, fatfree
pretzels, fatfree chips, as a spread on sandwiches - and anything else I
can get it to stick to. Hope you enjoy it.
