Garlicky Good Hummus

Hummus is one of those foods that doesn't last long in my house. Sure, we'll smear it on bread or use it to dip our veggies, but it's also pretty tempting to just stand there and eat it with a spoon. The best part about hummus? OMG SO EASY.

Ingredients:

1 Can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 Tbs olive oil
As much garlic as you like, but I go crazy with 5 - 6 large cloves
1/4 C lemon juice
Pinch of salt
1/4 C Greek yogurt

Blend all of it together in your food processor. Do a quick taste test, and adjust anything that needs adjusting.

The Greek yogurt makes it nice and fluffy. If you use a vanilla Greek yogurt, you get a really tasty blend of sweet and savory flavors, and it really brings out the nuttiness of the chickpeas.

Serve it any way you like - I like it with some goat cheese and veggies on flatbread - but if you want to eat it with a spoon, go ahead. I won't tell anyone!
