INGREDIENTS:


For dip:

  • 2 C low-sodium garbanzo beans (chick peas), rinsed
  • ¼ C low-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ C lemon juice
  • 2–3 Tbsp garlic, diced (about 4–6 garlic cloves, depending on taste)
  • ¼ C creamy peanut butter (or substitute other nut or seed butter)
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (or substitute paprika for less spice)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

For pita chips:

  • 4 (6½-inch) whole-wheat pitas, each cut into 10 triangles
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced (about 1 clove) (or ½ tsp garlic powder)
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:


  1. Preheat oven to 400 ºF.
  2.  To prepare the hummus, combine all ingredients for the dip and mix them in a food processor or blender.
  3. Puree until smooth.
  4. To prepare the chips, toss the pita triangles with the olive oil, garlic, and pepper.
  5. Bake chips on a baking sheet in a 400 ºF oven for 10 minutes, or until crispy.
  6. Arrange pita chips on a platter, and serve with the hummus.

Note: If you can’t find beans that are labeled “low sodium,” compare the Nutrition Facts panels to find the beans with the lowest amount of sodium. Rinsing can help reduce sodium levels further.
