This is my version of hummus...not totally authentic, but we love it.


Chop garlic with garbanzos in food processor for a few seconds, using on-off pulses.

Remove about a half cup and reserve.

Add lemon juice, yogurt, olive oil, cumin, coriander and sugar, and process till smooth, scraping down sides of bowl.

Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the reserved chopped garbanzos, combining well with spoon.

Taste and correct seasonings.

Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with chopped fresh parsley and a dollop of olive oil.

Note: I put fresh lemons in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds before juicing them...I get a lot more juice from them this way.
