Hummus is one of my favorite healthy snacks and I am constantly eating it with fresh veggies, baked chips, pretzels, and spreading it in sandwiches. I even like it with my morning eggs and as a crust for baked chicken. However store bought hummus can be very high calorie since it normally uses lots of olive oil and tahini, which both pack a pretty heavy caloric punch. Luckily, it is pretty easy to make really delicious hummus by replacing some of the olive oil with yogurt and adding fresh herbs and lemon to pack in the flavor. This version uses white beans, cilantro, garlic, lemon juice, and lemon zest and is one of my favorites. It's also delicious with basil, parsley, dill, or arugula. And if you like things spicy, toss in a jalapeno or some red pepper flakes.
