In a middle Eastern restaurant, this popular sesame dip usually comes with lots of warmed pita breads for dipping, and a pool of fruity olive oil on top. Just eliminating the oil pool saved a lot of fat and calories, as did cutting the amount of tahini (sesame paste) usually called for. We compensated by using a little toasted sesame oil, which delivers a lot of sesame flavor in a small drizzle. Try serving hummus with cut-up carrots and bell peppers for dipping. chickpeas (garbanzo beans), fresh lemon juice, fat-free sour cream, extra-virgin olive oil, tahini, garlic cloves, toasted sesame oil, ground cumin, paprika, chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley cvt
