E2 Healthy Homemade Hummus

This is not your average hummus - there's no tahini or olive oil - so it's not going to be as thick and rich as standard hummus recipes. But it's tasty in its own right and after a few bites it tastes like the "real thing." Mark and I have used this recipe again and again, adding spinach to give it a little extra nutritional value. And in our book, it's a keeper!

Healthy Homemade Hummus
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic (I use three very large cloves)
2-3 T lemon juice (I use two)
1 t Bragg's Amino Acids or low-sodium tamari (I use Bragg's)
3 T water or vegetable broth (I use broth)

Blend all the ingredients into a thick paste, using a small amount of water as neceesary to achieve desired consistency.

Customize by adding one or more of the following:
2 T toasted sesame seeds
1 fresh jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 roasted, seeded and chopped red bell pepper
1 C Kalamata olives
1 bunch fresh mint
1 C fresh spinach
1 C cooked eggplant
