I too love hummus, but it seems low in protein for the amt of fat calories it has. Has anyone come across a brand of hummus w/ higher protein levels?

Make it for yourself. Real Arab Hummus: chickpeas boiled with salt, in the processor add garlic, olive oil, lemmon juice and a little of tahine to taste. Sprinkle cumin and powder red pepper. Eat with pita bread, black olives and tomatoes Smile

The low fat mediterranean variation I've come up with is this:

2 tins chick peas (~480g)
50g sieved tinned tomato (but any tomato will do - I use this instead of tahini, hence low fat)
juice of 1 lemon
50-100ml water (to desired consistency)
4 tsp paprika powder
3 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 - 1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp each oregano, thyme and black pepper
chili powder to taste

Blend the lot together coarsely - it's nice to retain a little texture - and store in fridge or freeze portions. Takes 5 minutes.

If the final mix is 650g, per 100g it will contain 100kcal, 1g fat, 20g carbs, 4g protein, 4g fibre.

Compared to the average bought pack, that's 10g less fat and half the calories, and tastes better - at least in my humble opinion.

I make my own and prefer it to restaurant-made most of the time. Dead easy. If I were to offer tips for better hummous they would be:

*Make it with the best olive oil you have.

*Roast a whole garlic clove with only the very tippy top cut off and drizzled with a small amount of olive oil on top in the toaster over until it gets dark and soft. You can squirt out the garlic from the "paper" very easily once it cools a little. Your fingers will smell nice for the rest of the day too ; ). Roasted garlic doesn't have the bite of fresh.

*Use a generous amount of tahinni (sesame seed paste) and add lemon juice to taste. The lemon juice brings out the flavour in a similar way that salt does. Taste as you go!

*Blend in a food processor until it gets very creamy.

*Watch "Don't mess with the Zohan" and giggle to yourself.

There are quite a few Metros (formerly Dominions) near my house and they all sell Summer Fresh dips. I have recently fallen in love with Avocado Hummus. So deliciously creamy!
