      It sort of has the same texture, but this works as a GREAT substitute since it is much lower in calories and fat. I know that hummus has healthy fats in it from the olive oil, but if you've already met your fat quota for the day, this dip is perfect! :)

      This sounds wonderful. I like hummus, but this sounds even better.
