Diet Humus

I like Humus, but the Tahini adds a lot of calories & I just don't care for it anyway. I've developed this recipe w/ the Sesame Oil & less chick pea liquid based on how thick it is. Thought I'd pass along the recipe in case anyone wanted to try it.

1/4 Cup Yogurt (you can use plain retail stuff, but I recommend getting it at a Med or Arabic store)
1 Can Garbanzo Beans "Chick Peas" (save liquid & use to thin out Hummus if needed)
2 Tbs Sesame Oil instead of 1/2 Cup Tahini (Sesame Seed Paste) OR no Sesame Oil/Tahini
1 Tbs Lemon Juice (add more or less to taste, but I prefer less)
2-3 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 tsp of Salt
1/2 tsp Cumin
2 Tbs or less Chick Pea liquid "to adjust thickness"
2 Tbs - 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil (make a "dip" in the center of the Hummus & fill w/ Olive Oil)

Optional & can be added if you want:
2 Tbs of Fresh Parsley "for garnish"
1 tsp of Cayenne Pepper or Paprika "for garnish"

Mix first 8 ingredients and blend in food processor until smooth and to desired thickness. Garnish w/ olive oil.

Note: If you opt for no Sesame Oil/Tahini, you can add more Yogurt to make up for it.
