Diabetic Hummus

What better way to ease your hunger between meals than with a diabetic hummus recipe?  The traditional dipper for hummus is pita bread cut into wedges or squares, however you can also use vegetables.  Be warned of these two things… first, bread can be a no-no for some diabetics because it can be converted by your body into sugar, second… it’s really, really good and highly addictive!

This recipe was given to use by Harold from Manchester, England.

Nutritional Information

Not Available


  • 2 cups canned chick peas, drained
  • 2/3 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves mashed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • parsley for garnish
  • oil


  1. Place chick peas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cumin in food processor. Mix until smooth.
  2. The hummus may be a bit thick, so thin it out by adding a bit of oil or liquid from the can of chick peas.
  3. Refrigerate.

Optional: Prior to serving, sprinkle chopped parsley on top.

Using the liquid from the can obviously makes it a low fat hummus recipe, but the oil adds a lovely richness to the hummus.
