In Arabic, "hummus" means simply chickpea. The dish is more properly called hummus bi tahina ("chickpea and sesame")
"Great base recipe! I used 8 cloves of garlic and used peanut butter instead of tahini (I don't like the flavor), then added about a tablespoon of sesame oil. I also added a little onion powder, cracked black pepper, and extra cumin. Inplan on adding chipotle peppers in the future for an added kick. "- Jojoshoes

Top-ranked recipe named "Hummus"
Place first six ingredients on food processor. Mix until it forms a smooth paste. Add oil slowly while motor is running. Remove from processor and stir in parsley and mint. Sprinkle with either Summac or Paprika. Serve with pita bread.
Most super markets carry Tahini. Summac can be found in Middle Eastern markets. Paprika will work just as well if you do not have it.
Traditionally servred with Pita Bread. Chips, crackers, celery, carrots and other items may also be used.

Evejoybrown 1 year agoI don't usually like hummus, but LOVE this recipe. The mint is such a delicious addition. I eliminate the cumin and throw in lots of lemon, garlic, mint, and parsley. Would be great with kalamata olives, too.

MikeS85004 2 years agoThis was excellent. Could have used a bit more olive oil to make it a bit creamier. The mint was a nice touch.
lrosado09 2 years agoif I don't have the tahini, what else I could use and in what quantities according to recipe.

darrent 2 years agoNice and easy to make, but I think there is something wrong with the amount of garlic in recipe, perhaps it should have been 2 teaspoons or 2 cloves. My 2 Tablespoons was a whole bulb of garlic. There was a real strong taste that did not seem right, so I had to double the recipe to fix, obviously without the garlic this time. Then it tasted quite nice.
Iuliacarpov 2 years agoPlease also indicate garlic amount in average size cloves. Also would be good to indicate how much net chickpea (drained to take).
Bridgetm317 2 years agoYummy! Great recipe. I wasn't sure if I should drain the chickpeas. I decided to drain them. Turned out great.
lagonexus 2 years agoThankyou Cyrano - this is a fantastic and simple recipe. My only recommendation is if you are making it for a party make twice as much as you think you'll need - because if your like my wife and me you'll be eating it straight before your guests arrive and they will absolutely love it.
