This terrific hummus was made with white beans, which cut out the fat without sacrificing flavor.


Whole wheat pita(s)

6 small, cut into 6 wedges each

Olive oil cooking spray

6 spray(s), or enough to coat pitas

Ground cumin

2 tsp

Table salt

½ tsp

Canned chickpeas

15½ oz, rinsed and drained

Canned white beans

15½ oz, small, rinsed and drained

Tahini sesame butter

3 Tbsp

Fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp


2 medium clove(s), chopped

Asian hot sauce

1 tsp, or any variety


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place pita wedges on baking sheet and lightly coat with cooking spray; sprinkle with cumin and salt. Bake until golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, to make hummus, combine remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. If you don't have a food processor, use a blender or mash the ingredients together with a fork. (Note: Add more hot sauce if you really like spice.)
  4. Serve hummus with pita wedges on the side. Yields about 3 pita wedges and 2 tablespoons of hummus per serving.
