Ahhh, back to my favorite cuisine...Indian! This is a simple version of hummus that is full of spice and sweetness, texture and gourmet flavor. It is perfect when you have guests as much as it is the simple, delicious snack ready to use when hunger strikes. The recipe is quick and is as follows:

1 can garbanzo beans

juice of 1 lemon

2 Tbsp tahini

1 Tbsp agave or honey

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp curry powder

1 clove garlic

pinch of sea salt

pepper to taste

1/2 cup water

Blend until smooth. Add 1 cup raisins and pulse on the food processor until evenly distributed.

Serve with whole wheat naan, poppadoms, chips or crackers. t also makes a great sandwich spread. Enjoy! And...namaste!

This sounds delish and am going to try it this weekend. But since I'm all about no fat, what would you substitute for the tahanni? I'm thinking maybe a touch of cumin for that earthy flavor.


But tahini is from a whole food. It is not oil or processed. Maybe use less of it for the flavor? Although, because this hummus is so flavorful, you won't miss the tahini. It will just have a thinner consistency. Try it with the cumin and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
