Creamy Hummus with zing!

Summer time is here and the need for healthy snacks to take sailing or to parties. My version of hummus is easy, all the ingredients are readily available, completely healthy. It is very low-fat, and check that zing!

Chop three cloves of garlic in the food processor, add a can of chick peas rinsed very thoroughly under cold water  with the juice of half a lemon,  3/4 cup plain no-fat yogurt, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp sesame oil, 1tbsp balsamic, 1/2 cup cilantro, salt to taste. Puree. Don’t stop until it is smooth and creamy.

Eat with Pita bread, Kalamata olives, cucumber or as a spread to replace mayonnaise in sandwiches.

Optional: a sprinkle of hot sauce.

I had a visitor while I was doing the hummus, heard that chirpy sound, someone calling for their mummy. Was two baby otters. Seems that the mother has her den under my porch!
