Best Garlic Hummus (Oil Free)

Best Garlic Hummus (Oil Free) is for those who love garlic and hummus with a bit of kick. I made this for my mom and husband, who eat hummus almost daily. They both LOVE it! Kevin’s favorite go-to lunch is hummus, tomato, and kale sandwich on toasted Ezekiel bread. Mom puts a thick layer of it on whatever or will just eat a spoon full of it—almost like Zohan’s dad who dips his eyeglasses into a platter of hummus and eats it, and then stirs it into his coffee. Lol!

Best Garlic Hummus (Oil Free) has 6 key ingredients:

  1. Chickpeas
  2. Garlic
  3. Lemon
  4. Tahini
  5. Cayenne pepper
  6. Ground cumin

Anyway, Best Garlic Hummus is great on a grilled veggie and sprouted grain tortilla wrap, or as a dip for raw veggies and Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips.
