Creamy Hummus Dip

This is a creamier version of hummus than I have had before. It is not as thick as I am used to, due to a little more liquid but it is still just as tasty. A great snack and it would also be a great spread for a wrap or sandwich.
Creamy Hummus Dip
2 cloves garlic
1 can garbanzo beans, with a little liquid drained off , but not all
1/2 cup + 3 Tbls greek style plain yogurt
1/3 cup tahini
juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
dash of pepper

Place garlic in food processor and pulse until minced. Add beans, yogurt and tahini, and puree until smooth, scraping down sides if necessary. Add lemon juice and spices. Puree until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Spoon into a bowl and serve with pita chips and/or veggies.

Hummus is one of our favorite things. I never thought to add yogurt to it...yumm! If you are feeling like tweaking, try subbing the lemon with lime juice. It changes the flavor a bit. Also, chopped spinach, tomatoes and Kalamata olives create texture and add a veggie punch to it.
