I know, I know….I’m always posting hummus recipes–almost as often as I post peanut-sauce recipes!! These are the two sauces I can’t live without!
Anyway, commercial hummus tends to have points because it contains olive oil AND tahini, both of which are high in points. I never add olive oil to my hummus, but I do add tahini. I’ve tried the various Forks-Over-Knives recipes where you just leave out the tahini, but something seems to be missing. It’s just not as smooth and creamy.
I tried something today, however, that resulted in a nice creamy hummus without the added fat: I added 4 ounces of tofu and one scoop of Naked PB–a de-fatted peanut butter powder. The result is VERY good! And did I mention….ZERO points!
So here is the recipe, which I’ve taken from my recipe maker on the Weight Watchers site (just in case you don’t believe that it’s ZERO points!!!!).
Now, the other cool thing is that you can make a ZERO-point Caesar salad dressing from this recipe!
WW Zero-Point Caesar Salad Dressing

Oh, and the song of the day is Rod Stewart’s “Mandolin Wind” because I can’t stop singing it today!
