    I just made this and it's great! I used only 1/2c of NF yogurt and upped the garlic (and no salt) and it was exactly what I wanted! Thank you :) - 4/28/09

    Incredibly bland. I added extra chick peas - to balance the runniness of the yogurt, added a little more lemon juice, lots of cumin, some pepper (black and red) and more garlic. - 8/13/08

    You can also make hummus without yogurt, or tahini, just put, garbanzo beans, 1sp olive oil, garlic, the liquid from the can of beans, salt, pepper to taste. You can add any spice you want..I like dill it tastes really good. - 4/14/08

    Wow - I've made this 3 X now! I like the yogurt; makes it very smooth and creamy. The variations I've tried include sundried tomato, cilantro and just plain with less lemon. I started eating hummus when I visited AUS. I'd agree with most. You can't beat homemade! Thanks for sharing! - 2/19/11

    We loved it! Like other raters, I upped the amount of spices so it wouldn't be so bland. Very smooth, creamy, delicious. Can't tell how much a serving is though. What are you supposed to do? make a batch and eyeball it into 28ths and a 28th is a serving? Luckily this is so lo-cal it's not to worry! - 4/23/08

  • it needs something like sun dried tomato to give it flavor. I love sun dried tomato in mine. - 11/16/13

  • Nice recipe, needs spicing up a bit since yogurt replaces tahini which I usually use. However I tried this recipe and added chilli seeds in the mix a dash of olive oil, fresh corrinder and blended, after pouring it into a container I sprinkled paprika over the top and dash olive oil, delicious! - 3/8/13

  • Delicious! I'm glad there is a hummus recipe without tahini, since I can't seem to find it anywhere. I subbed FF sour cream instead of yogurt. Also, I was out of lemon juice, so I used red wine vinegar. Thanks for the recipe! - 11/13/11

  • Good, but needs more lemon juice and definitely some cumin powder. I even added a little water to make it less dry. - 11/12/11

  • I make it this way, with just a bit more spices.. 3 whole cloves of garlic, only 1/4-1/2 cup of yogurt, and paprika. Really makes a huge difference. - 6/7/11

  • I needed a recipe to remind me of the one I used to make, so I made this but not exactly low-fat, hehehe
    I added a tbsp of tahini but left out the olive oil for this time
    I added citric acid as well as the lemon wasn't enough and the hummus was already runny
    Yum yum yum - 12/5/10
