1. Spread garbanzo beans on a large plate. Mash well with a fork until they are as smooth as you like.

3. If hummus seems too thick, add 2 teaspoons of water. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Tips:

This hummus is a tasty version of everyone’s favorite snack, just with yogurt instead of tahini. With a dip this good, eating more vegetables is an easy task. Just chop up some bell peppers, celery or carrot sticks and dip away! You can always experiment with the flavor by adding chili powder, fresh chopped cilantro or parsley or even a low sodium hot sauce.
