An enjoyable snack

On this cold, humdrum Saturday, I decided to experiment with a recipe I recently discovered on, a website I frequent daily on my quest to find interesting and healthy meal options.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling (a.k.a. hummus) was quite enjoyable but required a bit of tweaking. Because of my egg allergy (oh, how I love you, the incredible, edible egg, but oh, what horrible things you to do me) I substituted the mayo with plain, lowfat yogurt (Stoneyfield Farm is my fave). Lacking celery and onion, I added some finely diced cucumber. I found the recipe to be bland and added a tad bit of celery salt and a healthy dose of garlic powder. I smeared a couple of tablespoons onto a whole wheat pita, tossed on some artichoke hearts, rolled it all up and served it with some grapes and cukes, and viola! A tasty, healthy snack.
