    This recipe does not sound low fat, and certainly the picture of it with olive oil poured over the top, looks very high fat. Who puts cottage cheese in hummus? It certainly is NOT a recipe for vegans.

      It is a lighter recipe than classic hummus… and it’s not marked as Vegan, so NO it’s not Vegan.
