1 (15.5 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained
fresh lemon juice
plain non-fat yogurt
Delicious! So incredibly easy to make. The yogurt adds a nice little tang, and as my boyfriend said, makes it a bit lighter as well. We cut back on the lemon juice (I think the 1/2 cup thing is a typo). After we tasted it, added some cumin and freshly ground black pepper, but we could have left it alone according to the recipe. Will definitely make again - great for informal get-togethers with friends!
I did this recipe exactly and it came out more like a hummus shake. Very watery.
This hummus was runny and bland. I like the idea of using yoghurt in a hummus recipe to give it an extra tang, but I wouldn't use this one again. It just wasn't worth "tweaking" to try to get it right.
yummy! I drained the yogurt in cofee filter,so it would be thicker and added curry powder, teaspoon of garlic 1 tablespoon lemon juice
I HELD BACK ON THE JUICE FROM THE BEANS &SEASONED WITH THE LEMON JUICE TO TASTE. I ALSO ADDED SOME TAHINI SIMPLY BECAUSE I LOVE IT. THE RECIPE CAME OUT GREAT AND NOT RUNNY.
1/2 a cup of lemon juice? What? I used 2tbs and it was perfect and I also used only 2tbs greek yogurt. For me it was the perfect consistency. I always add a dash of curry, cumin and cayenne to my hummus. I ate this with bagel crisps but of course hummus is good with raw veggies, pita bread and as a sandwich spread in place of mayo.
My bad. I didn't read the reviews first. I had to add a whole extra can of chick peas to make this almost the consistency of regular hummus. Far too lemony as well. Will not be using this one again.
I liked this recipe, as it is versitile. The problem with the original is too much lemon juice. It should only have 1 Tbsp or so. To mix things up, I used kidney beans and lowfat silken tofu, and chopped scallions can be added for extra flavor (mellow them by grilling them first). I've tried using strawberry banana yogurt as well for a sweeter dip.
