Ingredients

  • 3 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt or non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6-8 sprigs fresh cilantro depending on your taste
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 19 ounce can chickpeas drained *garbanzo beans), reserve 3 tbsp liquid from chickpeas

Instructions

  • In food processor, add all ingredients and process until smooth.
  • Add reserved liquid from chickpeas as needed, until you achieve the desired texture (I usually add about 1 tbsp)
  • Add additional cilantro and sprinkle a little crushed red pepper to garnish
  • Makes 2 cups

Notes

*Note: Cilantro is sold in bunches of several stems with side branches. If you pull out one stem with all the side branches, then pinch off one of the side branches with 3 or 4 leaves, that's a sprig. If you find the flavor isn't strong enough, add more sprigs until it's at the level you like.
