recipe makes about 4 cups

I found this recipe in the Food Network Magazine.  This gem comes from the The Desert Cafe in Baltimore.  This restaurant has a rotating menu of more than 175 versions of hummus including sushi and banana split.

Don't be fooled by the name - this recipe contains NO oil or sour cream!  The nutritional breakdown:
