Easy Low Point Hummus

3 servings
2 pts per serving

1 can (15 oz) low sodium garbanzo beans, reserve liquid
2 cloves of garlic, minced/pressed
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley
4 drops of hot sauce
1 tbsp olive oil

Blend all of the ingredients together. Add bean liquid as needed to reach desired consistency.

NOTE: As long as your can of beans is equal to 3 servings at 1 point each then the points for the three servings of hummus will be two points each. Check your can of beans to ensure this is true.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
