Low-Fat, Low-Cost, Big Taste Hummus
Hummus is a not only a nutritious nosh, but it is also budget friendly protein packed snack. No need to spend a bundle on a pre-made carton in the deli section, when you can make it yourself with a can of chickpeas and a quick whirl in the food processor.
A drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of paprika and a single olive for garnish can give this easy recipe restaurant-style presentation!

3 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 can (19 ounces) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
Pita chips, for serving
Place garlic cloves in food processor and pulse until minced. Add all remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Serve at room temperature. Makes 2 cups. Serve with pita chips that you bake yourself from quartered slices of pita bread, brushed with olive oil, and baked at 400 degrees until golden. Much less expensive than the pita chips in the bag!
