Chickpea-Yogurt Spread

2 cups
* 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
* 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
* 1 clove garlic
* Zest of 1 lime (3/4 tsp.)
* 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
* 2 teaspoons curry powder
* Salt
* 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro
* 1 ripe mango or apple, peeled, pitted and sliced
* Sliced pita or other bread, brushed with olive oil and toasted or grilled, optional
* Vegetables, optional

In a food processor or blender, puree chickpeas, 1/4 cup yogurt, garlic, lime zest, onion, curry powder, salt and cilantro until smooth. (Spread may be prepared to this point and then covered and refrigerated up to 3 days ahead.)

Spoon chickpea mixture into a decorative bowl, fold in remaining yogurt, top with mango (or apple) and serve with pita or bread. Add veggies for dipping, if desired.
