Hummus is a staple food for me and some may even call me hummus obsessed. I thought I had tried them all . . . until last night when I found Oasis Classic Cuisine “ZERO FAT” Hummus at Basic Foods in Hoboken, NJ. This hummus seems too good to be true – Kosher, gluten free, no sugar, no MSG, no additives, no preservatives, low sodium, low calories AND NO FAT! It kind of makes you wonder what it’s made of. Turns out it’s ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS – chickpeas, water, lemon juice, fresh garlic and sea salt. The website states that they even make their own tahini (the only Mediterranean food manufacturer in the US to do so).
Oasis Mediterranean Cuisine, a Toledo, Ohio based company, started out with 10 products in 1988 and has grown to produce 130 products. So far, I’ve tried the Original Hummus, Black Bean Dip and Lentil Dip and they are ALL FAT FREE and ALL DELICIOUS!!! You have to love guilt free eating! Oasis says they will remain focused on sound and ethical business practices which is always important in our Ecology Cool quest. To view a full list of products, nutritional breakdowns and to learn more about the company go to www.omcfood.com. From what I can tell, they have egg salad, so the company is not 100% vegan, but most of the food is vegan friendly.
My grandmother always tells me I need to make my own hummus with the amount that I eat, but until I find the time, this is a scrumptious option. I love that it’s healthy, natural, and made in the USA. I am a huge fan!!
