This is a low fat dip that easily takes the place of the classic hi fat hummus.

Hummus by another name is ... just as delicious. I loved the cumin and tofu in this which gave it a distinctive flavour and texture; and I always like the flavour of citrus fruits. I made my Chickpea Cumin Dip with parsley, as that's what was on hand, for Newest Zaar Tag. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Annacia!
