Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
 
Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

PREP TIME: 10 minutes COOK TIME: 12 minutes

Makes 2 cups and 32 pita chips

Yogurt and sesame oil replace tahini in this hummus, creating a lighter texture than the norm. Enjoy with green veggies, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, and bell peppers, and simply skip the carrots and pita chips.

Ingredients
8 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas, cut into 4 triangles each
1 1/2 cups canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup canned cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
4 sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), plus 1 tablespoon of the oil
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1/4 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt

Assorted raw and blanched vegetables, such as bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and scallions.

Instructions
Heat oven to 350°F. Place pita wedges on a baking sheet and bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Purée chickpeas, cannellini beans, tomatoes plus 1 tablespoon of their oil, and garlic in a food processor. Add yogurt, lemon juice, sesame oil, cumin, and salt; process until smooth. Serve at room temperature with pita triangles and vegetables for dipping.
