Rip's Oil-free Low Fat Hummus Recipe
Rip Esselstyn, author of The Engine 2 Diet says, "This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content.
