Hummus is a great midnight snack because it's big on flavor and low on calories. For this homemade version, simply puree chickpeas with garlic and tahini, add fresh lemon juice for a splash of citrus flavor, and finish with olive oil for that familiar creamy texture. Settle in on the couch with some pretzels and pita chips, then call it a night.
