 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       cn           (19 oz.) chickpeas, rinsed
                         -and drained
      1/2                To 3/4 cup non-fat yogurt
                         -(depending on how creamy
                         -you want it)
                         -juice of one lemon
    2                    -4 cloves of garlic,
                         -crushed (depending on how
                         -much you like garlic-
    2                    Is enough for me, but
                         -others I know insist on
                         -more)
      1/4   t            Ground cumin
                         -dash of black pepper
 
   optional, depending on how strict you want to be about the vlf: 6 drops or
   so of toasted sesame oil (doesn't add dramatically to the fat, but
   *greatly* improves the flavor for us “real” hummus fans - makes up
   partially for the lack of tahini)
   
   Combine all ingredients in blender and blend smooth.  Garnish with a dash
   of paprika and serve w/pita triangles, in a sandwich, etc.  My favorite is
   hummus on a pita with carrots, cucumbers, and lettuce (that was lunch
   today, in fact!)  Hummus is so easy to make that you can whip it up while
   eating breakfast to take to work (like I did today) for all you people
   looking for quick lunch ideas.
