Simple Oil free Hummus

I often make this hummus when we have to take a sack lunch with us. Sandwiches aren't very exciting when you are gluten free, because the bread choices aren't as satisfying anymore. But hummus is filling and nutritious. We make baggies of carrot sticks to dip into little containers of hummus. We used to use corn chips for dipping. They are often a favorite gluten free food, but they contain loads of oils heated to high temperatures. Heated oils are easily damaged and in turn damage our health if we eat them. So we seldom eat corn chips anymore.

1 can of garbanzo beans, drained
1/2 cup tahini

2 - 4 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process on high speed until very smooth and creamy.
