I add artichokes to my hummus to cut the calories by a bunch, and to enhance the flavor as well. This allows me to exclude the tahini and not notice the difference. Very yummy!
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 can artichoke hearts (use the other half in your spinach dip!)
1 T. olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves, depending upon how much you want to flavor the hummus
2 T. lemon juice
Fresh or dried Rosemary to taste (1/2 tsp dried? or 1 sprig fresh), chopped finely
A sprinkle or two of Cayenne pepper (I'm Cajun, so I add more!)
Fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste
Put the garlic cloves in the food processor until minced. Add everything else, and process until smooth. If you need a little liquid, use some of the artichoke heart liquid, rather than the chickpeas. You won't be sorry!
Here are the stats:

Serve with fresh cucumber spears, and you have a great treat for a small point value. It's delicious!
