Healthy Vegan Hummus

This Healthy Vegan Hummus is adapted from my “no-oil” hummus in my bestselling cookbook “Detox Week“.

I did add oil to this recipe as healthy fats are important to add in a vegan diet. But you could omit it and still have a wonderful healthy hummus recipe!

And if you want to make this recipe low sodium, simply omit the salt (I like to add a but more lemon in it’s place) and get low sodium chickpeas.

Canned chickpeas are ideal for this recipe as you will need the liquid from the can. But if you like to boil your own, just hold back some of the chickpea water/liquid for blending and it will still work out fine.
