Hummus is one of those rare foods I never seem to get sick of. It's so versatile, and I love that you can change it up with different flavors when the mood strikes (I love adding basil and sundried tomatoes, for example). But my go-to, absolute favorite version is this more basic recipe with traditional flavors.
I enjoy serving it with pita bread and veggies for a snack or light lunch, or adding it to a platter of grilled chicken, rice, and tabbouleh salad for a Mediterranean feast! I think the key ingredient here is the greek yogurt - it adds an extra creaminess and slight tang that is delicious!
My Favorite Hummus
- 1 can garbanzo or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4-1/3 cup plain greek yogurt (non-fat works well)
- 1 Tbsp. Tahini
- 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
In a food processor, blend the beans, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and greek yogurt until smooth. Add the tahini, cumin, salt & pepper and blend until well mixed. Taste, and add more salt or pepper if desired. Transfer to a small serving bowl, and garnish with a few dashes of paprika. Serve with pita chips and vegetables.
