Lemon Yogurt Hummus by Christine Datian

Christine Datian’s Lemon Yogurt Hummus

Christine Datian has come to my rescue!

Little did she know, but I’ve been swamped this week
helping with an upcoming event at our church. In fact, I’ve been taking
reservations along with my side-kick, Linda Aginian, and it’s been keeping us
on our toes.

How did Chris rescue me? By providing me with her latest
recipe, Lemon Yogurt Hummus currently appearing in The Armenian Mirror-Spectator(pg. 15), to post for my readers.  

The recipe is quick, simple, and lip-smacking delicious!

I’ll be back in ‘The Kitchen’ soon!
