Margaret's Healthy Hummus- Quick and so easy!
Margaret brought this hummus to the IDG Cottage lunch. It was delicious served with mini pitas and crackers.
One 19 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
½ cup plain non-fat yogurt
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp ground allspice
In food processor or blender, puree all ingredients with 1 tablespoon of water.

Hummus sometimes includes tahini, a paste made from ground sesame seeds. If you have some on hand, add a teaspoon or so. Believe it or not, peanut butter (creamy, not chunky) is a great “fake-out” for the tahini flavor.
