    You might be just the sweetest wife I know! Joe reminds me a lot of my husband, but at least you’re able to prepare foods the way he likes them. HA.

    This recipe looks good….I love hummus so much and find that it’s a great way to get protein too. I have a recipe for hummus too on my blog. :) Because everyone does. I think the yogurt is an interesting addition and will have to try this recipe.

    Great post!

    It’s wonderful to have a good husband, isn’t it? Joe didn’t like all of the olive oil and honestly, I like this version much better, too.

    I used to make a delicious hummus back in college (many, many moons ago) but have since lost the recipe. So I’ve relied on Trader Joe’s or my friends’ homemade hummus.

    You’ve inspired to start making it on my own again – thanks!

    It’s so much cheaper to make yourself AND you can make it exactly how you want to. Gotta love that.

    We love hummus in our house and I’ll definitely be giving your yogurt version a whirl (in the food processor!)soon.

    The hummus sounds great. I’ll have to try your recipe soon. Your husband’s reaction to new foods reminds me of my husband. We have had to switch to a Gluten and Dairy Free diet and shortly after the switch my husband announced that he thought life was over. Well, at least all the fun stuff. he’s since come to realize that it’s not “over” just different. I think his turning point was when I made G/D Free Apple Gingerbread Cobbler.
    I do have one question for you…do you think that Vegan sour cream alternative would work well as a substitute for the yogurt?? That’s the only ingredient we can’t have. I guess I’ll try it out in the next couple of weeks and find out. Thanks!

    I’ve never tried vegan sour cream so I can’t answer that. I would say that if you think it’s close to yogurt than, yes. If it’s more like sour cream it will just give your hummus a creamier texture and no yogurt tang. Alternatively, use oil instead of the sour cream OR – my new favorite version – 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup tahini, which results in a much lighter hummus.

    I know this only because I had to go off of dairy for a while. :)

    Hi Amy! I just found your blog today – so excited! My husband went GF last spring and ever since then I’ve had to try to find all new recipes to cook for him! I am excited to have found your blog as my main goal is to find healthy recipes, and I have found that if the recipe is focused on being GF, it’s not so focused on being healthy. So I am glad to have found a place where the focus is on both! :)

    One question for you – have you ever tried freezing this recipe? I am looking to find a great hummus recipe that I could make in a huge batch and freeze a bunch. I simply don’t have the time to make it every week! Thanks so much!

    @Dana, I haven’t – I have cooked a pound of garbanzo beans then frozen them and used them to make hummus.

    I don’t see why it wouldn’t work but I could be wrong. If you freeze it, I’d love to know the result.

    @Dana,

    I researched how to freeze hummus, and the consensus is to use a “liquid lid.” Smooth the hummus in the container and drizzle a layer of olive oil on the top of it. I tried this and it worked great! I thawed the hummus and just stirred in the oil on top. Now if you’re avoiding using oil, I apologize as I don’t have an answer for that one. The only thing with hummus is it gets pretty grainy after being frozen without the oil.

    I hope this is helpful.

    Amy, thanks so much for adding this to the Wholesome Whole Foods carnival! It sounds amazing! I’ve never even thought to add yoghurt to hummus! I love Larousse Gastronomique as well! I’m looking forward to making this, thanks Amy!

    Hi Amy! First THANKS FOR YOUR commitment to yummy, healthy food!
    Re: the not just any old humus recipe. If I don’t have yogurt on hand, can I substitute sour cream?

    Thanks!
