This is another recipe I took from the 20011 Biggest Loser Calendar. I've made some additions that should not change the calorie count at all.
Black Bean Hummus
1 can of black beans (they call for you to cook your own - not interested!)
1 can of garbanzo beans (or double the black beans)
2-3 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup silken tofu (silken refers to its softness. I hadn't bought tofu before and learned something new when comparing packages)
2 TB Tahini paste
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
juice from 1 small lime
1/4 tsp. salt
sprinkle of paprika
1/4 bunch of cilantro - leaves picked from the stems (this is my own addition)
Rinse the beans from their juice, then throw all of it in a food processor. Whirl until well mixed and smooth.

Dip in what you like. I'm sure veggies are the best choice, but if I'm having it for a meal instead of a snack I've been eating it with Special K Multigrain crackers (17 crackers = 90 calories). OR I put the hummus in a high fiber tortilla wrap along with a bunch of veggies/salad mix. Yum!
