Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus and Pita Bread

4 Feb

Ingredients
8 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas, cut into 4 triangles each
1 1/2 cups canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup canned cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
4 sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), plus 1 tablespoon of the oil
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1/4 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. Place pita wedges on a baking sheet and bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.
3. Puree chickpeas, cannellini beans, tomatoes plus 1 tablespoon of their oil, and garlic in a food processor. Add yogurt, lemon juice, sesame oil, cumin, and salt; process until smooth.
4. Serve at room temperature with pita triangles and vegetables for dipping.
Make-ahead tip: The flavors of hummus improve when it’s made up to 3 days in advance; refrigerate in a covered container until ready to use. Bring to room temperature before serving. Pita chips can be toasted up to a day ahead.
