This post comes from our contributor Jill of a Better Happier St. Sebastian.

Homemade Hummus
makes 1 3/4 cups hummus

1 15oz can garbanzo beans, drained
2 tbs cup tahini paste
1 tbs olive oil
2 tbs lemon juice (approx 1/2 lemon)
1 tbs Greek yogurt
1 tbs water
3 cloves garlic, chopped
salt, pepper to taste

In a food processor, combine tahini paste, lemon juice and water. Pulse until tahini is whipped and frothy. Add garbanzo beans, garlic, and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Process thoroughly until a very rough mixture is formed. Remove lid and scrape down the sides of food processor. Add olive oil and Greek yogurt to mixture. Continue processing until evenly mixed. Taste to check for flavor and consistency – if hummus is too rough for your liking, add more olive oil or water to thin.
