Notes

This is my rendition of an old Cooking Light recipe. I love hummus and this version is a bit healthier than the rest because cottage cheese stands in for some of the Tahini. This is how I make the recipe, but feel free to jazz it up with other spices.

I spread this over pita bread and top it with feta, toasted walnuts and cilantro. It's so good!
