Easy excellence! I'm trying to cut down sodium, so I used salt-free garbanzos, and didn't add salt. I added extra spices to make up for this, and it was delicious! Also, I was out of lemon juice, so I used 1/2 lime juice, 1/2 rice vinegar, and put a little lemon pepper in, and it seemed to work. I also didn't have fresh parsley so used dried, but added some fresh cilantro which was really yummy. Can't wait to try it again when I have all the right/fresh ingredients! Oh, I also added some Olive Oil (just a little) for more creaminess, but I think it would be fine without - just more fluffy and not as creamy as traditional hummus, but with great flavor and low fat!
UPDATE: I made this again following the recipe exactly and it was even better - yum! I didn't use olive oil this time - so this is a very low fat hummus. I mixed it with my Bamix hand blender, which can really get things creamy, so I think that helped.
