Sweet & Savory Thursday ~~ "1/2 & 1/2 Hummus"


  • 1 - 15 oz. can Garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 - 15 oz. can Cannellini beans, drained 
  • 1/2 cup lowfat plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce (I used Cajun Sunshine)
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic pepper seasoning
  • Balsamic vinegar

  • Drain and thoroughly rinse beans in colander.
  • Place beans in food processor.
  • Add yogurt, lemon juice, hot sauce and garlic pepper seasoning.
  • Puree until smooth.
  • Place in serving dish.

  • Drizzle with slight amount of balsamic vinegar.
  • Serve with veggies, apple slices, pita bread, flat bread, chips, dill pickles, green olives, or other items of your choice.
  • By adding a swirl of balsamic vinegar before serving, it seems to provide a tasty balance.  
  • On a personal note, the flavor of this hummus was more enhanced when eating it on apple and veggie slices.
  • This is a great dish to serve at the start of an evening with family or friends as the 1/2 and 1/2 hummus seems to disappear much quicker than the normal variety.
  • Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
