Well I don’t know about you, but I’m still going strong on my 2017 resolution to eat clean.

For me, snacks are the trickiest part of eating light. It’s so easy to grab pre-packaged crap at a coffee bar, or load up on glorious cheese and crackers.

The only way I can reach my goal this month is to plan ahead. I’ve been making low carb meals to take on-the-go, and preparing better snack options.

Hummus is one of my favorite solutions! It’s rich, filling, flavorful, and easy to pack with cut veggies.

Several years ago I realized you could make hummus even lighter (without giving up flavor) by substituting plain greek yogurt for the tahini.

Tahini is a wonderful sesame paste that lends a nutty essence and creamy texture to hummus, but it’s loaded with fat. Most store-bought brands of hummus add both tahini and olive oil. I decided to add greek yogurt for a smooth texture and (less) herb-infused olive oil for flavor.

The result… Tahini who?

How to Make Crispy Rosemary Hummus Recipe #healthy

I’ve made this Crispy Rosemary Hummus recipe in numerous variations, but this is a favorite.

Flash-frying fresh rosemary sprigs in olive oil is a multi-purpose venture. First, it crisps-up the tough rubbery rosemary leaves, also mellowing out the overpowering flavor.

Second, the rosemary perfumes the olive oil. So when you add the rosemary-infused olive oil and the crispy leaves to the hummus you get a mild, but well-rounded piney flavor. Plus it takes less than 5 minutes to make!

Crispy Rosemary Hummus is a great snack when guests drop by. I try to keep garbanzo beans stocked for just such occasions!Perfect Crispy Rosemary Hummus Recipe #healthy
