The refrigerator light goes on...

I love hummus, but a lot of recipes and versions you find in the grocery store are pretty calorie dense because they use a lot of tahini (sesame seed butter).

Look to maximize the key flavor of a calorie dense ingredient like the tahini without using too much. By combining less tahini with the non-fat yogurt it's easy to bring down the calorie count and still end up with a rich and creamy hummus.

Healthy Hummus recipe from Dr. Gourmet


  • 2 15-ounce cans no salt added garbanzo beans
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup non-fat yogurt

Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans, but reserve some of the liquid from the can.

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until almost smooth.

Add the aquafaba (the liquid from the beans) a tablespoon at a time if the hummus is too thick for your taste.
