Hummus is a Middle Eastern spread that is sometimes served with warm pita bread. It's wonderful with lots of raw vegetables. Here's how it's made: Drain and rinse a can of reduced sodium garbanzo beans and tip into a processor or blender. Add 1 tablespoon tahini (a sesame paste), 2 tablespoons lemon juice, chopped garlic, salt, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Turn on the machine and pour up to ½ cup of water in, then whiz to create a thick spread. Scrape into a bowl and stir in ¼ cup chopped parsley for a bright, fresh flavor. This is a terrific, fiber-rich dip for carrots, celery, peppers… you name it!
