Humus Dip - Low Fat!

Submitted by: LAMARSHA1

Introduction

Great low fat alternative to the store bought Humus dips! You can experiment and add any spices you like. Great low fat alternative to the store bought Humus dips! You can experiment and add any spices you like.
Number of Servings: 9

Ingredients

    1 can (15.5 oz) garbanzo beans drained (approx 1-3/4 cups)
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/2 cup low fat plain yogurt
    Juice of one lemon
    Olive oil to consistency - this recipe estimates 1-1/2 Tbsp.
    Fresh Chives - 3 Tablespoons or more
    Spices: Basil, summer savory, your choice!

Directions

Place beans, crushed garlic, yogurt, lemon juice in blender and pulse to smooth. Pulse in olive oil and spices. This humus will be thicker than the super calorie laden store bought - but holds up well with carrot, celery, and cucumber sticks. It has saved me many times from high fat snacks!
Approximate 9 servings are based on 1/4 cup - based on a final quantity of 2.25 cups of dip when finished blending.
