In Arabic, "hummus" means simply chickpea. The dish is more properly called hummus bi tahina ("chickpea and sesame")

Jenflier , 1 years agoEasy to eat with anything. Delicious! I made it for a relative party and everybody loved it!
Evejoybrown , 1 years 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 , 1 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 , 1 years agoif I don't have the tahini, what else I could use and in what quantities according to recipe.
Jojoshoes , 2 years agoGreat 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.
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.
MischiefsMom , 2 years agoBest hummus recipe I have made! Super Yummy :)
PamMowry , 2 years agoTHIS is the one. I have been trying out different recipes for hummus, but none have had the consistency or flavor I was looking for. I didn't add the mint or sumac, but it was great.
