Low-fat hummus dip

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can (16 oz) garbanzo beans; chickpeas
1 teaspoon Tahini
1 teaspoon Extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Chopped garlic
1 tablespoon Water
¼ teaspoon Pepper
2 teaspoons Fresh lemon juice
Cayenne pepper to taste
½ teaspoon Cumin
⅛ teaspoon Salt
2 Hard-boiled eggs; yolks removed
2 tablespoons Chopped black olives
1 Sprig parsley

Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans. Try to remove as much of the loose outer covering of the beans during the rinsing process as possible. Discard these outer coverings. Process all ingredients except the eggs, olives, and parsley in a blender or food processor until smooth. Place in a serving dish.

Remove the egg yolks and save for another recipe or discard. Chop the egg whites into small pieces, mix with the olives, and sprinkle over the dip.

Garnish with parsley to serve.
