I had never had hummus in my life, but kept hearing about it from various friends. My vegan friend RAVES about it. I finally bothered grabbing some Mediterranean flavored at Trader Joe's and I absolutely LOVE IT.

I like to put a tablespoon of it on a grilled cheese sandwich.

1 oz lowfat cheese - 80 calories
2 slices Nature's Own Honey Wheat - 140 calories
1 tbls Hummus - 35 calories
4 slices tomato - 15 calories
1/2 tbls Country Crock spread to fry it in - 25 calories

Such a great cold weather comfort food for only 295 calories.

Hummus - I think I'm in love.

Can anybody else suggest some great recipes using it?

I don't have any recipes but I just this year tasted Hummus for the first time and I am in love also. I use it on fat free crackers as a snack and as a dip for my veggies.
