If you area watching your weight, this is a great recipe for you. This easy hummus with yogurt recipe replaces most of the traditional tahini with yogurt.

  • 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
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or as desired)
  • }Chopped parsley
Preparation:
  • 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 your 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.
  • Garnish with parsley and beans.
