I got this idea to use yoghurt from my friend Nasreen. I used to work at a Lebanese restaurant that had the best hummous and I could not get the recipe out of the owner!! he he he. I just loved it and wondered how they got the hummous to be so light in color compared to most hummouses... well, my friend Nasreen showed me how to make baba ghanoush one day and she added yoghurt to it and told me to add yoghurt to hummous also to get a lighter color. I finally figured out it was yoghurt!! It is best to let this sit in the fridge for at least a couple hours to overnight for the flavors but is still good to eat as soon as it is done. Thank you for all of the reviews of the recipe ;)
