Another "Hummus" recipe ranks higher.
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"
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.
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!

Tarousa 1 week agoAs I'm from middle east in my country Lebanon we don't do it that way we don't add cumin or roasted peppers or anything else the hummus is chick peas tahini garlic lemon don't keep any of the water that comes in a can with the chick peas always rinse them before you put it in the food processor add fresh water. The olive oil is for to decorate the plate you put it in the center of the hummus. I was reading the coment one of them used the heard chick peas yes you can use it but you have to soak them in cold water overnight then in the morning you put them in the pot with water on medium heat till they get soft then wait till they get cold then you put them in the food processor. This is a traditional Lebanese humus.
richardhweiner 1 week agoI have to try this but no tahini. ..not a fan of sesame taste. Substitutes?
Samsineni 3 weeks agoSo easy and so tasty! It lasted forever, so mind the portion sizes if you're only making it for a small amount of people.

ReverendKen 1 month agoI'm sorry about my not knowing chick peas were garbanzo beans, and my phone's spelling of hummus.

Saraboysen 6 months agoVery good, very easy. This was too little salt so I added 1/2 t. Garlic salt
_rezo_ 6 months agoMade a bit of a mess but was completely worth it. Considering making tahini instead of buying next time.
