Lightened-Up Hummus

Lightened-Up Hummus

May 16, 2006

Authentic hummus recipes include lots of tahini and olive oil and, although those are healthy ingredients, they are still high in fat and dense in calories. Here, tahini (a sesame seed paste) is replaced with a much smaller amount of sesame oil and a drizzle of olive oil. A typical 2 tbsp (25 mL) serving of hummus has about 89 calories and 5.8 grams of fat, but this one, lightened up with calcium-rich yogurt, has only 52 calories and 2 grams of fat. Pack this dip with vegetable sticks and whole grain pita wedges for a quick and wholesome lunch.
