I eat a lot of hummus, as it is low in fat, high in fiber and protien (if you get the types not made with a lot of oil.)
Fantastic Foods makes a passable instant version, but for me it is too high in sodium.
I worked on a recipe the past week, and came up with an acceptable version. I do use a food processor, as I quadrupled the recipe in the last making (this afternoon).
At home process in a blender or food processor till smooth:
1 15 ounce can Garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tbl water or lemon juice
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp granulated garlic
salt to taste if desired
Spread on parchment lined dehydrator trays, dry till dry. This takes about 3-5 hours, depending on humidity. 135* As it dries, break up the cracking hummus, and powder it up, this helps speed up the drying. It is dry, well, when dry.
When dry, crumble into a powder and split evenly into two sandwich bags. Each bag will need about 1/2 cup of cold water. It rehydrates almost instantly. If desired, add a tsp or two of olive oil when rehydrating.
Each bag serves 1. Excellent in mini pita bread or on tortillas.
(Notes: I find that when rehydrating, use same amount water as mix. Then add more if too stiff. Cold water works just fine. Warm is not needed.)
Note 2: Adding a jar of drained roasted red peppers is excellent.
Note 3: Eden Organics makes excellent garbanzo beans that are very low sodium. Otherwise, I use heavily rinsed Trader Joe organic ones.
