  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

Sandwiches

  • 4 whole wheat pita (pocket) breads (6 inch), cut in half to form pockets
  • 1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh spinach
  • 4 very thin slices red onion, cut in half

    To assemble sandwiches, spoon about 2 tablespoons hummus into each pita bread half. Place spinach leaves, onion and tomato slices in each.

  • Cannellini beans are loaded with fiber—the soluble kind that helps to lower blood cholesterol. Start slowly so you have time to get used to more fiber.
