This is an oil free version of my basic hummus recipe. I doubled the amount of water and left out the oil. It is creamy and tasty! No one that I served it to knew the difference!
1 cup cooked garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1/2 hot bean water (or hot water)
1 heaping tablespoon tahini (optional)
1 garlic clove (or more to taste)
Freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 of a lemon)
Pinch of salt
Paprika, for garnish
Place the beans into the bowl of the food processor. Add hot bean water, tahini, salt, garlic cloves, and lemon juice. Process. Taste and adjust seasoning. Pour into a serving bowl. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika.
Enjoy with toasted pita chips, carrots, on a sandwich, by itself, etc. Enjoy!
