Vegan Zero Oil Hummus Recipe

This vegan zero oil hummus is a wonderful spread for those of you avoiding most fats.

As many of you know, when I first went vegan, I lost 30 lbs. in 1 1/2 months without even trying. The weight just fell off. But then I started getting comfortable with this new way of eating and got a little more lax with what I allowed in my eating plan. Big mistake.

This vegan zero oil hummus is the perfect low fat, high protein snack!

While I didn’t really gain any weight back (maybe a pound or two) I stopped losing completely. It was a stalemate between me and my scale.

Then I started reading a book by Dr. Neal Barnard and I realized that I had started eating more fats.

So now, I’m zeroing in on reducing my fat intake as well. I’ll see what the results are soon, I would imagine!

One of my favorite things to keep on hand is a big tub of homemade hummus. But as many of you know, hummus typically includes oil and tahini, which is also high in fat.

So instead of giving up my beloved hummus, I got to work on creating a hummus I could have. The result was this beautifully silky bowl of hummus that I just can’t get enough of.

THE FLAVOR:

The flavor is slightly different. There isn’t as much tang to it. It a milder flavored hummus.

THE TEXTURE:

The texture is also slightly different. Its a bit more silky and “fluffy” as well as a little less dense then regular hummus
