I’ve revised the classic hummus recipe to omit tahini, which is the ingredient that adds a nutty flavor as well as a lot of calories.  Instead, this recipe cuts the calories and ups the protein with yogurt.  I like to serve this with flatbread, green castel vetrano olives, and Marcona almonds.

2-4 cloves garlic
          Mince in food processor.

1 15-oz. can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
cup Greek yogurt
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. paprika
3 Tbl. olive oil
juice of lemon
sprinkling of salt
          Add and process until smooth.  (I like it rough so I stop just short of smooth.)

2 Tbl. olive oil
up to 2 Tbl. water
          Add as needed, in this order through tube, 1 tablespoon at a time, to thin. 

          Put in serving dish, make indention and fill with:
1 Tbl. olive oil
          Srpinkle with:
1 Tbl. toasted pine nuts or toasted sesame seeds
chopped parsley
