I'm not a fan of tahini but love hummus. Does anyone have a good recipe?

It isn't quite the same, but for awhile, tahini was giving DS hives, so we replaced the tahini with plain yogurt, and it was yummy.

Edited to include recipe

I use
- about 4 cups cooked, or 2 cans drained, of chick peas
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 T lemon juice
- 2 T yogurt

Blend together, and adjust the seasonings to taste. Add a splash of olive oil if it is too thick, and serve with a little olive oil drizzled over the top, of course.

Here's the recipe I use, when I don't have any tahini.

1 cup garbanzo beans, soaked and cooked
1 tbsp. EVOO or sesame oil
2 tbsps. lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup water (or veggie or chicken stock -- really gives it good flavor)
1 tsp. horseradish

Process all ingredients until smooth. Easy, peasy.

ETA: That's adapted from the recipe in Eat to Live, btw.

You can use peanut butter in place of the techina also.
