I was looking in a Weight Watchers cookbook and came across a hummus recipe. The husband and kid (and I) both LOVE hummus, so I thought I'd give it a try. I got the stuff at the store this week and made it this afternoon.

1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 garlic cloves
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp ground allspice

In food processor or blender, puree all the ingredients with 1 tablespoon water.


I used nonfat sour cream instead of the yogurt and skiped the allspice because I didn't have any. And I think I used a little more than 2 tsp olive oil. I tasted it after pureeing for awhile and thought it needed a little more.

It's really yummy and comparable, I think, to Trader Joe's hummus. Not nearly as good as Pita Jungle's here in Phoenix (probably the best hummus I've ever had), but pretty good.
