Hummus is one of my favorite things. And I’ve made my share of hummus recipes. What I’ve come to realize is that I’m not a huge tahini fan. Sorry. I’m just not. Somehow I like hummus better without it.

Once I realized this, I decided to find another way to achieve that layer of creaminess that whipped tahini adds to a delicious hummus recipe. I tried adding extra olive oil. I tried a touch of cream. I even tried popping all the chickpeas out of their skins, which is supposed to make hummus smoother.

But none of these created the rich and smooth hummus recipe I was looking for.

And then Stonyfield and Late July Organic teamed up and asked me to create a dip using yogurt that would be perfect as a dip for the organic and delicious Late July Chips. I bit into a multigrain sea salt chip and knew instantly that the dip had to be hummus. And then I realized that Greek yogurt was what my hummus recipe was missing.

Since coming up with this hummus recipe I’ve made several batches and have eaten them all. I even ate some for breakfast one day! It’s really that good.

Prep time
Total time
 
I find that every head of garlic has a different amount of pungency. This recipe calls for one clove, which was plenty garlicky enough the times that I made it. But if your garlic is weak, or if you just can't get enough of it, go ahead and add extra. Yields 1 and ¼ cups of hummus.

    I LOVE dill pickle dip!

  3. Rust says:

    I like cumin in hummus also.

  4. Rust says:

    I have to say avocado – is that a fruit? :)

  5. Heather says:

    My favorite fruit dip is marshmallow fluff mixed with cream cheese. Heaven on Earth!!

  6. Barbara Bradford says:

    My grandchildren love the tang of yogurt, so I simply dehydrate fruits and then use my blender to make fruit powders. They love to mix their own dips by adding a bit of strawberry , banana or peach powder or they just have fun and mix different powders. Some of their dips are quite creative but when they finish lots of tasting they dip their apple slices in. (One note: Kiwi powder does not taste anything like fresh Kiwi)

  7. Pam Gurganus says:

    My favorite fruit dip is a combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped cream!

  8. Acker says:

    Two of my favorites; stony field yogurt and late July chips. Healthy snacking!

  9. itzia says:

    fresh fruit and yogurt.

  10. Skye says:

    Hummus is one of my favorite foods. I’ve already made it twice this week! I put roasted acorn squash in one recipe and it was so yummy! Can’t wait to try it with greek yogurt. Thanks for the opportunity to win. The chips look awesome!
    And as far as a fruit dip goes does chocolate count?

  11. MaryB says:

    Hmmm, favorite fruit dip? I’m not sure since I don’t usually use dip with fruit. LOVE hummus and can’t wait to try this version made with my favorite Greek yogurt.

  12. Nicole k. says:

    I’ve never made hummus before, but my 9 year old loves it , so I’d like to try to make my own soon :)

  13. Liz says:

    Greek yogurt–what a great idea! I don’t mind tahini, but I usually leave out lemon juice. I like to add a dash of cayenne, red pepper flakes, and cumin. And I use a couple cloves of elephant garlic instead of regular garlic. Now I’ll give the yogurt a try. Thanks for sharing!

  14. AHHH-MAZING recipe, Christine! I’m happily munching on Mild Green Mojo chips as I type this comment. SO delicious, but the Stonyfield yogurt is the key to my current state of happiness :)
