Why I Love This Recipe

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!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons tahini
1/2 cup cottage cheese, low fat
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin


Place all remaining ingredients in food processor and process, scraping sides of bowl, until creamy and smooth.

Makes about 1 ½ cups of hummus.
