Simple, healthy dip made from garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas).

"This is a great recipe to have on hand. Perfect for a quick snack or add parsley, olives and olive oil to the top and call it lunch. I only used 1 small garlic clove and a little more lemon juice than called for. These changes were only a matter of my own taste. I think this is a great recipe and will be making it again. Fast, flavorful, and easy. Five stars in my book"

Preparation

Drain the garbanzo beans and reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid

Combine the beans, 1/4 cup reserved liquid, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, olive oil, cumin, pepper and salt in a blender or small food processor. Puree until smooth.

Best if refrigerated for at least 3 hours. Serve in a shallow dish, drizzle additional extra virgin olive oil over the hummus just before serving.

Notes

You can add all sorts of extras to this base recipe: sun tried tomatoes, peppers, chilis, ginger. My favorite is to add 1-2 tbs of harissa (a Tunisian hot chili sauce) to give a nice heat!

Very good, very easy. This was too little salt so I added 1/2 t. Garlic salt

Made a bit of a mess but was completely worth it. Considering making tahini instead of buying next time.

I just made this and used chili powder since I was out of ground red pepper. OMG... it is absolutely the best hummus I've ever tired! Will never go back to expensive store bought hummus again. My husband loved it too!!!

I used dried garbanzos that I had rehydrated so maybe that wad the problem... I used 2 cloves of garlic and it is much too garlicy. Overall a great base recepie that you can change to your liking. Thanks for posting!

Hummus is not Greek. It is a very tasty middle Eastern recipe but not Greek. I have first found out about hummus once I moved from Greece to UK 12 years ago. For some strange reason people there thought that hummus is Greek. Since then I have tried to find out if there is any area in Greece where people are preparing hummus with a different name or something similar. I have failed. I have to say that it started appearing in some Greek supermarkets relatively recently. I cooked this to my parents this summer and I found it hard to convince them eating it. As for me I love it, but I do not consider it Greek.
