Looking for a healthy dip or spread for your sandwiches? This hummus is packed with flavor and is low calorie so it won’t sabotage your gym efforts.


  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 215 oz cans of garbanzo beans, I used low sodium version — drained and rinsed.
  • 4 tbl of fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c or so of good olive oil
  • 1 c of fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 jalapeño, stem removed


  1. In your food processor, place the cloves of garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Then add the beans, lime juice and salt. Puree for about 1-2 minutes. It will look like a chunky oatmeal texture. Then through the spout, finely pour a stream of the olive oil. This will blend with the bean mixture and make a smoother, hummus type texture. Then add the jalapeño & cilantro and pulse again until incorporated.


You can serve right away or refrigerate for 1-6 hours and then remove before serving, allowing enough time for it to return to room temperature for optimum flavor.
