Lemony Chickpea Dip

Lemony Chickpea Dip

Canned chickpeas offer fiber; rinsing and draining them reduces sodium. A spoonful of oil balances the spices and hot sauce and adds unsaturated fats. We liked this dip with torn whole wheat pitas, crisp bell peppers, and celery sticks, but it works double-duty as a sandwich spread.
