Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Greek yogurt is known to be thicker (it's strained) with a creamier consistency than regular plain yogurt. But if it's not available in your area, regular plain yogurt can be used instead. While testing, we found thickness varied with different brands and it may be fun to conduct your own taste test and compare two or more brands.

You can substitute any kind of olive you like. Why not scout the olive bar at your grocery store and pick out a new variety?

For a different flavor twist, look for hummus with added ingredients, such as roasted garlic.
