Hummus with Baked Pita Chips

This irresistible Middle-Eastern inspired dip makes a great appetizer for everyone. Serve with pita triangles, whole grain crackers or better still, a plate of raw vegetables. Makes a great healthy snack for energy with your game night!!

•1 15-ounce can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
•1 tbsp of tahini (ground sesame seed paste); oddly, peanut butter is a great substitute
•2 cloves of garlic
•3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
•3 tbs fresh parsley
•1/2 tsp cumin
•1/2 tsp salt


In a blender or food processor, puree all the ingredients. Stop and scrape down the sides if necessary. Add in a tablespoon or two of fat free plain yogurt if the dip needs thinning.
