Top-ranked recipe named "Hummus"

Share it:

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. "

Preparation

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.

I 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.
