Description

A healthy, low calorie, savory Mediterranean dip that is made with roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese and topped with vegetables and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE HUMMUS:
  • 15-½ ounces, weight Can Garbanzo Beans, Drained, Rinsed (reserve The Juice From The Can)
  • 1 clove Garlic, Peeled
  • 2 ounces, weight Fire Roasted Red Pepper, From Jar, Patted Dry, Roughly Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Cumin
  • ½ teaspoons Oregano, Dried
  • 1 Tablespoon Feta Cheese, Fat Free
  • 1 Tablespoon Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • ¼ cups Cucumbers, Peeled, Diced
  • ¼ cups Seeded, Diced Fresh Tomatoes
  • 5 slices Banana Peppers, Pickled From Jar Or Pepperoncini Peppers
  • 5 whole Pitted Greek Olives
  • 1 teaspoon Feta Cheese, Fat Free
  • ¼ teaspoons Balsamic Glaze

Preparation

Add all of of the hummus ingredients into a food processor and blend until mixed well and a smooth consistency is reached. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved chickpea juice at a time if it’s hard to mix. I used about 1/4 cup of juice.

Place the hummus into a serving bowl and add the toppings on top.

Serve with vegetables or pita chips. Also goes great on a sandwich!

This was a great recipe. Simple to make and the spices were perfect for us. Today I will make it for the second time in two weeks to bring to a holiday get together. It is a perfect healthy party food with veggies and pita bread when just about everything else will be highly caloric. Thanks!
