Ornish Reversal Hummus Recipe
Serving Size: ¼ cup
Prep: 5 min
Ready: 5 min
Hummus is a delicious, nutritious way to add heart-healthy plant protein and cholesterol-reducing fiber to your diet. We’ve updated this Ornish Reversal-style hummus with fresh and fragrant green herbs, lowering the fat and calories by leaving out the usual high-fat tahini (sesame seed paste) and olive oil. Serve this creamy hummus as a dip with whole grain pita chips and fresh vegetables, or use as a base for a sandwich or wrap.
3 CUPS cooked garbanzo beans (chickpeas) or two 15-oz cans no salt added garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
½ CUP water
1 ½ TABLESPOONS lemon juice
2 TEASPOONS ground cumin
1 ½ TEASPOONS ground coriander
1 TEASPOON garlic finely chopped or pressed
½ TEASPOON fine sea salt
¼ TEASPOON freshly ground pepper
1/3 CUP cilantro leaves, firmly packed finely chopped
2 TABLESPOONS mint leaves chopped
Paprika for garnish
1. Place garbanzo beans, water, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Process until smooth and creamy, adding more water as needed to achieve desired consistency.
2. Add cilantro and mint. Pulse briefly to incorporate; herbs should “speckle” the mixture rather than turn it completely green.
3. Spoon hummus into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
