  • 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed butter)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Place all ingredients, except reserved bean liquid, in food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add reserved bean liquid as needed for a smoother consistency.


Spread hummus on whole-wheat pita bread or serve as a dip for vegetables. This version is lower in fat than most commercial varieties, which is important when it comes to reducing hormone-dependent cancer risk and keeping your immune system operating smoothly.
