Garbanzos are not the only bean worthy to be hummus. This recipe uses creamy navy beans instead. All types of beans have no cholesterol, almost no fat, and plenty of protein, vitamins and fiber. Enjoy this hummus spread on whole-wheat bread for lunch or with whole-grain, low-salt crackers or raw vegetables.
1 (15-oz can) no-salt-added navy beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup bottled roasted red bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. bottled minced garlic, preferably roasted
1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crumbled
1/4 tsp. no-salt-added liquid smoke (optional)
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
