The Rule of Three
Chickpeas, tahini and Greek yogurt get it on in a healthful new snack
A more satisfying low-fat hummus
We’ve just experienced what you might call the ultimate health-food ménage à trois.
Eat Well Enjoy Life has unveiled a new line of low-fat hummus ($4 to $4.50 for 10 ounces) that combines chickpeas with tahini and one of the all-stars of the wholesome universe, Greek yogurt.
Each of the line's five flavors contains less than half the fat of traditional hummus, as well as one-third less calories. Typically, low-fat hummus is made with less tahini and thinned out with water, resulting in a less substantial spread; this version resolves those issues with the addition of Greek yogurt, which imparts thickness and flavor.
We enjoyed the Spicy version, with its fiery three-pepper center, as well as the added crunch of the Roasted Pine Nut flavor. The other iterations include a traditional chickpea version, Roasted Red Pepper, and Roasted Garlic.
Plus, the dips are an additional way to work live and active cultures into your daily routine.
Let’s get it on.
