Recipe: Hummus Lite

Here in southern California we were spared the heat wave for most of the summer . . . until now! Personally, when the weather is this hot I have an appetite for only the lightest foods-- and last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. A light-tasting, no-cook recipe like hummus is exactly what I crave.

This light hummus recipe replaces half of the chickpeas with firm silken tofu for a light-tasting hummus with a little less calories and fat.

Recipe: Hummus Lite


1 package Morinaga Silken Tofu in Firm or Organic Firm (Lite Firm may also be substituted for even lower calories)
1 (15oz) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1 clove garlic, crushed

¼ cup water

¼ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)

¼ cup lemon juice OR the juice of two small lemons

2 tbsp olive oil

¾ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 tsp cumin powder
cayenne pepper and cumin for garnish (optional)


1) Blend tofu, garbanzo beans, and garlic in a food processor until chopped.

2) Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.

3) Garnish with cayenne pepper and extra cumin if you like, and serve with pita bread or vegetables.
