Low Fat Vegan Recipes 6

Low Fat Vegan Recipes 6In this part of my low fat vegan tutorial series I cover a few Middle Eastern and Mediterranean classics. We make whole wheat Pita Bread, Pita Chips, Sun Dried Tomato Hummus, Baba Ghanoush and an amazing Chickpea Sweet Potato soup.

I might be strange, but I prefer to eat my hummus warm. I normally stick it in the pita bread and then cook it at 450 degrees for 5 minutes. If you have any recipes that you think I’d like leave them in the comments below.
