This lightened-up version of hummus still has everything you'd expect to find in this traditional middle eastern dish, from chickpeas to tahini to olive oil, to garlic and a hint of yogurt for extra smoothness. Feel free to substitute Greek yogurt for an extra dose of protein and less sugar. Serve alongside pita chips or fresh vegetables, or use as a sandwich spread instead of mayonnaise. Just be sure to stick to the serving size of 1/4 cup.

- 1 tablespoon non-fat plain yogurt (or Greek yogurt)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
