My sister-in-law Olga brought this Hummus over to our house on Christmas eve and it was really good I especially loved the addition of artichokes (I'm a sucker for artichokes). She recently got a recipe book called 'Hungry Girl: 200 under 200' and this was a recipe from it. It is 200 recipes under 200 calories. I promptly made this myself the next week to bring to work and have with veggies as a snack since I had all the ingredients already in my pantry.Thanks Olga for hooking me up with a new recipe for a healthy snack!
