Yummus hummus

Yummus -a lower fat and calorie hummus.
From Eat Shrink and be Merry

You can easily dress up the boring looking hummus by serving it in an interesting dish, or creatively arranging the dunkables.
Hummus is also delicious on wraps and sandwiches.

1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup light sour cream
2 TBSP tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 TBSP freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1/2 tsp each of salt and granulated sugar
1/4 tsp each of ground cumin and ground coriander 

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and whirl until smooth. Serve with warm whole wheat pita wedges, breadsticks or crisp veggies for dunking. 

Makes about 2 cups
