Who doesn’t adore hummus. This easy hummus recipe replaces most of the traditional tahini with yogurt. This is a great alternative for those who are watching their weight.
1 15 oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained (save liquid)
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon tahini, or low fat peanut butter if you prefer (optional, but if you do not use, increase yogurt by 1 TBLS
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
In a food processor combine beans, tahini (if desired), yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice. Blend well. Add salt and cumin and blend to a smooth and creamy dip.
If you hummus is too thick, add a little bit of the liquid from the chickpeas - about a teaspoon at time. Other ways to thin out hummus is by using warm water or olive oil also.
