Don't be scared, it's not as weird as you think it is. I love hummus! So good and super healthy too!

2 cans garbanzo beans a.k.a chick peas drain and rinse one can and not the other
1/2 bulb of garlic (about 5 cloves)
1/4 c plain Greek yogurt (regular also works great)
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Blend beans, garlic, and yogurt in a food processor or blender until smooth and drizzle in the olive oil, add your salt and pepper (use about 1 Tbs. salt). Enjoy with pita chips or tortilla chips, even raw veggies are great!

*To add variety you can add things like roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and sun dried tomatoes to change up the flavors a bit. For ideas just stake a stroll around the special cheese case where they sell the hummus and you'll see a bunch of different kinds.

I'm kinda really obsessed with hummus. I eat it way to often. I'll have to make this for sure! Thanks for the recipe Mary.
