Angela's Famous Hummus

Angela brought hummus to last Wednesday's luncheon for Buffy. By popular demand, here is the recipe!

Makes 8 servings

One 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt or Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

In food processor or blender, purée all the ingredients with 1 to 2 tablespoon water.

Tip: hummus sometimes includes tahini, a paste made from ground sesame seeds. If you have some on hand, add a teaspoon or so. Believe it or not, peanut butter (creamy, not chunky) is a great "fake-out" for tahini flavor.
