Baked Potatoes with Mushroom-Broccoli Topping (Serves 3)

Baked Potatoes with Mushroom-Broccoli Topping
Sometimes you just need a recipe that serves 3…or one that serves two with lunch for one the next day. This is it! The addition of hummus creates a creamy sauce for the crisp sautéed vegetables and eliminates the need for any “butter” on the potatoes. This dish is low is rich and satisfying, high in protein and has only 350 calories per main course serving. It is also easily prepared in less than 45 minutes. If you use extra virgin olive oil, be sure it is first cold pressed (non-hydrogenated). You may also of course, eliminate the oil altogether. In that case, subtract 40 calories and 4.5 grams of fat from each serving. ~ Glyn and Will
