I make my hummus healthier by not adding oil or Tahini to it. I season it with roasted garlic, roasted peppers, hot sauce, or any other low cal flavor I’m enjoying at that time. I also up the nutrition and drop the calories by adding 1/2 to a whole package of thawed and drained frozen baby spinach or even Broccoli. With lots of garlic and lemon you can’t taste the green veggies in it.
