I love hummus and this recipe lets me enjoy it more often without the higher calorie count of some recipes. Serve with warm pita bread and sliced veggies for a nutritious snack.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor combine beans, tahini (if desired), yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice. Blend well. Add salt, cumin and cayenne and blend to a smooth and creamy dip.
  2. 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.

I put some in a Greek pita sandwich. Since joining, I've become exceedingly enthusiastic about Mediterranean lunch folkways, but then my family claims I have a talent for over-reacting.

Went the all yogurt route & added chopped black olives, it is so good that I want to jump in the bowl!!! Fabulous!!!

This was the best hummus recipe I've ever made. It's very creamy and has a milder taste than other hummus recipes that I've tried. I made half the amount 'cause I was finishing up some chickpeas and I only had enough for 1/2 the recipe. I will definitely make the full amount next time. This was excellent!
