You can’t go wrong with the classic pairing of pita bread and hummus. Although hummus has become popular enough to earn cold-case space in most grocery stores, your homemade Pillow Sourdough Pita deserves a homemade spread. Fortunately, you can easily whip up a batch in minutes in your kitchen, as I share this week in my Twice as Tasty column for the Flathead Beacon.
For maximum flavor and creaminess in my hummus, I use roasted garlic, a little Homemade Yogurt, and home-cooked dried chickpeas. My hummus is still ready in minutes because I always have a stash of roasted garlic and fresh yogurt in my fridge for all sorts of uses. Then I’ll cook up a large batch of beans for a couple of meals and throw in an extra 2/3 cup of dried beans to pull out for hummus. But for spontaneous hummus, I always have a can or two of low-sodium chickpeas in my pantry.

Twice as Tasty
If the thought of creamy homemade hummus paired with soft sourdough pita bread or baked into crispy pita chips isn’t enough to convince you to keep roasted garlic and tangy homemade yogurt on hand, all of their other uses should make them inevitable regulars in your fridge. Roasted garlic is especially simple to make: I put a couple of heads in the oven when I’m baking or roasting another recipe or on the grill any time I fire it up. If I run out, I can always roast a head in my toaster oven. Yogurt-making is also an easy habit to fall into because the dregs of one container become the starter for the next.
Here are just a few of the recipes on the blog that use roasted garlic, homemade yogurt, or both. You can find more in the recipe index.
- Creamy White Bean and Yogurt Dip
- Mashed Potatoes with Yogurt Whey
- Spring Vegetable Quiche
- Sourdough–Yogurt Pancakes
- Immunity-Boosting Garlic Soup
- Vegetable Couscous with Chickpeas and Feta
- Indian-Inspired Shrimp in Yogurt
Beyond working as ingredients, these tasty treats stand on their own. Smear the soft garlic on toast, scoop the tangy yogurt into a bowl with some fruit, and breakfast is served. You can also learn more about using dried beans in this blog post.
