It was a sad day when I discovered that chickpeas had way more carbs than protein :(
Then, I discovered Pea Protein!! This is one of my favorite things to eat, and one of the few recipes that I actually like BETTER than the high-carb way of making it! Beware of the store-brought brands of hummus in particular, they pack more carbs than homemade.
The net carbs of this depend mostly on the amount of garlic and lemon that you put into it. The other ingredients are approximately 3.6 net carbs for the whole entire recipe, which yields 4-6 servings (.6-.9G net carbs per serving).
Mix together the following ingredients (a spoon or fork works, you don't need a blender):
30 g tahini (you can cut this amount down if you want to make this low fat as well)
30 g pea protein (the brand I use is available on Amazon)
Garlic (as much as you want, just under 1g carbs per clove)
Freshly squeeze lemon juice (about 1/2-1 lemon's worth usually does it for me = 2-4 g carbs)
Crushed black pepper to taste
I seriously love this recipe SO much. I make this hummus once a week and it lasts me the whole week!
6 Servings with the following nutritional information:
