Hungry Girl Artichoke Hummus

Submitted by: CLYNNEABAIRD

Introduction

The problem with hummus is that a serving size is relatively small -- just two tablespoons. So even though the stuff isn't crazy-high in calories, it's way too easy to overdo it by eating too much of it. Luckily, I DO have a recipe that's SUPER-LOW in fat with a pretty large serving size. It can be found exclusively in the "Dip It Good" chapter of Hungry Girl 200 Under 200. But since you're desperate, I'll give it to you right here and now...

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 cup canned artichoke hearts, drained
    1/4 cup fat-free vegetable broth
    1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt (like Fage Total 0%)
    1 tbsp. lemon juice
    1 1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
    1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. black pepper
    1/4 tsp. ground cumin
    1/4 tsp. paprika
    One 15-oz. can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
    Optional garnish: additional parsley flakes and paprika


Directions

Place all ingredients except chickpeas and optional garnishes in a blender. Set aside.

Place chickpeas in a bowl and thoroughly mash with a potato masher or fork. (If you have a super-strong blender, feel free to skip this step.) Transfer to the blender. Puree until smooth, stopping and stirring if blending slows.

For best flavor, refrigerate hummus for several hours. Before serving, garnish with a sprinkle each of additional parsley flakes and paprika, if you like. Dip away!
