I took out a subscription a few years back to Reader's Digest.  I didn't think I would be getting much reading done with newborn twins beyond a few short stories so RD seemed the right way to go.  I still get the magazine and always beeline for the recipe section.  The Looney Spoons gals have a section of recipes that are featured each month.  In January they had a great version of hummus that I made yesterday and it was delicious.   
Here is the recipe:

1 can (19 oz/540 ml) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup light sour cream
2 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp each salt and granulated sugar
1/4 tsp each ground cumin and ground coriander

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and whirl until smooth.


Serve with warmed whole wheat pita wedges or crisp vegetables for dunking (or both).

Makes about 2 cups. Enjoy.


  1. Mmmmm ... i love hummus. I'll have to try this one.

  2. That looks good and not too fattening. I'll have to give it a try.
