Low Fat 'Faux' Hummus

There are lots of ways to put together a bean dip that tastes similar to hummus, and keep the fat content to a minimum. Here is one of my favorites.  I call it 'faux' because there is no tahini paste involved.

Low Fat 'Faux' Hummus
Makes about 1-1/2 cups

  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup Balkan style fat free plain yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • dashes of salt, pepper, and cumin
  1. Blend all ingredients till the mixture is the texture you like.  I prefer it a bit chunky.
Per 1/4 cup serving.
