The Best Lemon Dill Hummus I’ve Ever Eaten (Without Added Oil or Tahini)

People sometimes say it is too expensive to eat healthy. It’s not necessary to spend extra bucks on already made hummus when you buy a can of chickpeas for less than a dollar and turn it into the best lemon dill hummus I’ve ever eaten, – without added oil or tahini. Also, when you make it at home you know exactly what went in it.

Lemon Dill Hummus Without Added Oil or Tahini

1 15 ounce can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (save the liquid)

1-2 cloves of garlic

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 teaspoon dried dill (2 if using fresh)

1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)

In a food processor or high speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. Add the reserved bean liquid (or water) a little at a time until you reach the consistency you desire.

This lemon dill hummus makes a great dip for fruits or veggies. Without any added oil or tahini, it is low in fat which makes it a healthy snack option. It also works in a wrap or on a sandwich. Adjust the lemon and dill to your tastes and enjoy!

I also like chocolate hummus with fruit. Red roasted pepper hummus without added oil also makes a good dip you and guests will love.
