Chick peas are one of the most versatile beans that abound in all major nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium as well as fibre. This is a healthier version of the traditional hummus that is made using loads of olive oil. Serve this lemony-garlic chick pea spread on thin whole wheat pita bread and sprinkle a little chilli powder on top for that added spice. I often serve leftover hummus with whole wheat toast for breakfast as a healthier substitute to butter. Try it and I am sure you will enjoy it.

Great low cal version. Used low fat curds and note that the olive oil consumption is only 1 tsp. At restaurants, you will get 2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil which makes this very unhealthy.
